If you’re feeling a little sad today, listen to this episode to learn about how to talk about in English. Slow dialog: 1:27 Explanations: 2:40 Fast dialog: 14:18 Emily: I think Jackson is depressed. Shivan: How can you tell? Emily: Well, he’s been suffering from a loss of appetite and is generally lethargic. Shivan: Have you noticed any other symptoms? Emily: He seems to have trouble concentrating and has insomnia. Shivan: Um, really? Emily: Yes, and I’m afraid he’s having suicidal thoughts. He seems distant and distracted, staring off into space. He’s not his usual self. Shivan: How can you tell? Emily: What do you mean? Shivan: I mean, he looks the same to me. He just swims back and forth in the fish tank. Emily: Just look at him. He’s on the edge of mental collapse! Shivan: Somebody is. Script by Dr. Lucy Tse
