N2 listening practice lesson 36 – Tapescript:


アナウンサー: 先生は、あまり薬を出さないそうですね。

女: ええ、患者さんの中には、薬を出さないことを不満に思う人が多いですが、できるだけ薬を頼らないような治療を心がけています。もちろん、病気によっては、薬がなくてはならない場合もあり、また、使い方によっては、薬が効果的な場合も多くありますが、軽い風邪などの場合、栄養のある食事をし、暖かくしてよく寝ると、たいていの場合は、そのうちに治っています。注射をしたり、薬を飲んだりすると、かえって、治りが悪くなることもあります。病気は、自分の力で治すことが大切なんです。でも、このことを患者さんにわかってもらうのは、なかなかむずかしいんです。






Vocabulary :

栄養(えいよう) : nutrition

Translation for Reference :

A doctor is answering the interview on TV.

Announcer : It seems that you don’t usually write prescriptions.

Woman : Yes, there are many patients who are dissatisfied with not having any prescriptions, but I’m trying to treat without relying on medicine as much as possible. Of course, depending on the type of illnesses, there are also cases that I must write prescriptions, and depending on how to use medicine, there are also many cases where the medicine is effective. However, in case of having a mild cold, if you eat nutritious meals, warm up and sleep well, your illness is usually cured soon. If you take the injection or take any medicine, your illness may get worse. It is important to cure illness with your own power. However, it is difficult for patients to understand this.

What is said to be difficult for patients to understand?

1.Using cold medicine effectively

2.Trying to eat nutritious meals

3.Determining whether medicine is necessary or not

4.Curing illness without relying on medicine

Instruction to practice:

Exercise format: Listen to the whole conversation and choose the answer.

In order to understand and do this form of exercise effectively, you can apply the following steps:

To do this form of listening, the best way is to listen to keywords. We need to understand the general content of the conversation.

According to the following keywords : 薬を頼らない (not relying on medicine), 心がけています (trying to), 治りが悪くなる (the illness gets worse), we can immediately understand the content of the conversation. There is a lot of information in this form of listening, so we need to focus on the main information.

So the correct answer is: 4.薬に頼らないで病気を治すこと
