Quiz playing is a wonderful way to increase your knowledge of English as a Second Language. Remember that all of our ESL quizzes have titles that are both friendly and technical at the same time… In the case of this quiz you might like to tell your friends about “Don’t You Feel Well?!” but no doubt your teachers will talk about the “Illness & Allergy Accidents quiz”! If you hear a technical term and you want to find a quiz about the subject then just look through the list of quiz titles until you find what you need.
This quiz, ‘Don't you feel well’, looks at illness, allergies and accidents. These can happen to almost anyone, and anywhere. If you have some form of 'medical emergency' ('major' or 'minor') when you are away from your own country - perhaps as a reaction to new food, or whatever - it can be particularly worrying. Who do you tell, and how, in order to help you get better?
Of course, if you're with someone and they are looking after you because of an illness, allergy or emergency, they may notice a problem and ask 'Don't you feel well?'. But even if they do, you still need to explain the problem (unless it's obvious, like you've accidentally cut your finger). What might you need to say next?
Inflammation (Answer 2) means that the flesh is warm to the touch (like a 'temperature'), which suggests some quite serious and deeper damage to the tissues of your body, and/or maybe some infection.
'Bruising' (Answer 3) is when there is bleeding beneath the surface, and that part of you may have turned an abnormal colour ('black and blue' is one alliterative traditional phrase).
A body part is 'swollen' (Answer 4) when it comes up in a bigger size, quite possibly from being bruised and/or inflamed. If you have an uncomfortable or unfamiliar 'lump' or swelling, you should probably consult a doctor.
