Frequency of Use: Medium to High
You are an English teacher, and one of your students has recently missed a number of classes, and she tends to fall asleep in class. (She also works 25 hours a week.) Things just don’t seem normal because she is always as busy as a been and works so hard in her classes. However, yesterday, she suddenly passed out in the hall, and after going to the hospital, a doctor told her to cut back on her work. What recommendations do you have for her? Keep in mind that if she doesn’t work, she might not have enough money to pay for rent, food, health insurance, and school tuition.
“She should check to see if you qualifies for a school scholarship.”
