"Spanish for Health Care" is an innovative, self-paced, online occupational Spanish conversation course that seeks to bridge the communication gap between English-speaking health care professionals and Spanish-speaking patients.
The course incorporates visual imagery (photos associated with words and phrases for better retention), native speakers to hear proper pronunciation, language tips, intuitive reading exercises, interactive assessments to measure your progress and comprehension, and cultural lessons. And remember--this course is self-paced (with an instructor available to answer questions)! Go through the course as slowly or quickly as you would like.
Printable handouts including a summary of Spanish words and phonetic pronunciations are provided within the course.
