NOT DONE! PLEASE WAIT 'TILL I AM DONE. THEN YOU MAY POST! ¡GRACIAS!
I have checked out your homework, and the first two parts seem are well done, but the third part has some mistakes, I will try to help you, but you need put attention, because it's very important for you, it in a future when you speak Spanish will use mostly the word Tener in all the sentence, you have made mistakes within your wrote but, it're little mistakes, anyway I think ,you can to get better in your own built of words well, let's go to work in your homework.


Part C
Please check for any errors in the conjugating for tener (...).
1. Julia y Andrés tienen un resfriado., I only found a mistake, you didn't put the word N
2. Fernado tiene dolor de cabeza. I found a mistake, in this phrase you did't put the word Un, I tell you without the word un the phrase has not sense.
3. Clara y tú tenemos dolor de oídos. I found a mistake in the part of Tenemos , there you must use the word Tienen instead of tenemos, because you are speaking in three person.
4. Claudia tiene dolor de muelas. Well done.
5. Ramón tiene dolor de garganta. Here in this phrase would to be well done, but I think you could to use newly the word Un, because if you put the word UN, it will sounds better. it's my counsel.

Now, make suggestions about what each of the person should do.
1. Julia y Andrés deben descansar. <<<Is that the way to say "rest"? Yes there in the phrase you must to use rest, it's the same to Descansar.
2. Fernando debe tomar medicina. Here I found a mistake fault the word Su, if you use the word Su, you are indicate the propriety of someone, the you must to use Su.
3. Clara y tú debemos llamar una médica. Here I also a mistake, you must to use the word deben instead of debemos.
4. Claudia debe
5. Ramón debe


Ok, I have corrected you in some words but, I believe that you have made well your homework. Well done.

It's kind of hard to explain. For certain professions, the word's ending changes if the person is male or female, and for other professions, it doesn't.

El dentista / La dentista (doesn't change, ends in a)
El doctor / La doctora (ending changes to an a when the person is a woman)
El médico / La médico (doesn't change, ends in o)

It is OK to use la médica. It just isn't very common. I was going to mention that before, but thought I would sound sexist. In the past, it was not OK to use the noun like that, but it is accepted now. Many professions that were traditionally held by only men warranted only the masculine ending. Times have changed.

Rusty I don't agree with you explain toward Jessica, because the word Medica or Ingeniera, or any gender is most used for people in my country, it mostly in Mexico than other countries, but if you have another explain, please you comment above it.
