Conversations between the Nurse and students - LA TAREA

HOMEWORK.

I have to translate these sentences, so I just want to make sure they are correct.

1. --¿Está mejor tu garganta? Does your throat feel better?
--No, está peor. Debo quedarme en la cama. No, it's worse. I should stay in bed.
2. --¿Por qué no vas a hacer ejercicio el viernes? Why can't you exercise on Friday?
--Porque me lastimé la pierna. Because I hurt my leg.
3. --¿Cómo te sientes? ¿Todavía tienes fiebre? How are you feeling? Do you still have the fever?
--No, ahora tengo sed. No, right now I'm thirsty.

GRACIAS MIS AMIGOS

They look right to me but I'm no Spanish expert.

calling Rusty...
Quick question! I was researching how to say these phrases in voseo form. And it seems to me that the tu and voseo forms of estar (in present tense) are both estás. Is this correct?

Voseo is something you do not need to worry about. Voseo is used as the primary form of the second-person singular (you form) in Rioplatense Spanish spoken in Argentina and Uruguay and to a lesser extent in some other Latin American countries.

estáis = vosotros (you all)
