Students work in pairs for a role play activity. One of them will be a doctor and the other will be a patient (un paciente). The patient must say at least five symptoms in order to help the doctor identify his illness and possible treatment. In this sense, it’s important to know how to give suggestions in Spanish using “DEBERÍA”.
