♪I’m suffering from hay fever. – 花粉症




Hi everyone! Thank you for tuning in to Time for English.

Spring is coming, and so is the pollen. I’m already suffering from hay fever. Do you know what hay fever is? Hay fever is an allergic reaction to pollen. Pollen is a fine power from trees and grasses.

When you have hay fever, you typically have a runny nose or stuffy nose, or red eyes or itchy eyes. Other common symptoms include sneezing, sore throat, headache or fatigue. It can be difficult to tell the difference between a cold and hay fever.

Personally, my nose gets itchy like crazy. I’ve got to fight the urge to stick my finger in my nose. I don’t want to do that, especially in the presence of others.

Anyhow, would you like to try a quiz? I’ll give you three options, please listen carefully and choose the one that is TRUE. Ready?

Hay fever is:
1. something that you’ll have when you have a cold.
2. caused by an allergy to the pollen.
3. another name for a cold.
