Course Description:
Tired of relying on the patient's family members, your co-workers, or even telephone assistance to handle simple conversations with Spanish-speakers? What if you could learn just enough Spanish to get through a typical workday all on your own? And, what if you could do so while having some fun at the same time?

Spanish for Healthcare Professionals is a beginning Spanish program, designed for healthcare personnel who understand and speak very little, or no, Spanish and are interested in an effective, non-threatening language learning experience. Course content includes basic vocabulary and grammar, along with conversational expressions, questions, and commands tailored to the needs of all those attending. Instruction is "real-life" and geared for today's busy adult learner, taught in an atmosphere that guarantees rapid language acquisition and valuable cross-cultural awareness. Learning Medical Spanish is finally possible without the hassle of traditional classroom instruction. Sign up for this life-changing seminar.
