Je suis malade

I feel sick. Maybe talking about it in French will make me feel better.

J’ai un mal à la tête. I have a headache.
Je suis fatigué. I’m tired.
J’ai froid. I’m cold.*

Elle a un rhume. She has a cold.
Elle a un nez qui coule. She has a runny nose.
Elle a le vertige. She is dizzy.

Il a la grippe. He has the flu.
Il a de la fièvre. He has a fever.
Il a chaud. He is hot.*

Tu te sens bien? Do you feel well?

*In English, we say I AM or he/she IS – forms of the verb “to be.” In French, the verb is avoir – “to have” – literally translated “I have (a feeling of) cold” or “He has hot.”
