Medical Spanish Classes

Learn Medical Spanish
A medical Spanish course for health professionals

Each Medical Spanish Course is totally customized to meet the specific needs and requirements of your own medical profession.

Our Medical Spanish Courses are intended for general physicians, specialists, residents, medical students, nurses, midwives, hospital managers, emergency medical service professionals and medical health-care practitioners in general, who need to use Medical Spanish in their workplace to effectively communicate with Spanish speaking patients, their patients' families and/or colleagues.

As the Spanish speaking populations in the USA and Canada continue to grow, many health professionals join our Medical Spanish Classes as they want to provide the very best care possible to each patient.

Hospital visits, internships or volunteering at local public hospitals in Panama City, Boquete and Bocas del Toro, Panama can also be arranged and we can also put you in contact with doctors in the private medical sector looking for volunteers and/or assistants.

LEARN MORE ABOUT OUR MEDICAL SPANISH COURSES...
Medical Spanish Classes are designed for students who have at least reached an Intermediate Spanish Level (B1, Conversational I, lower intermediate, according to our level system). If you're a beginner, no worries: we can help you get there and still provide you with some medical Spanish! Besides signing up exclusively for One to One Spanish Lessons, many students who wish to learn Medical Spanish, join our Group 4 PLUS Course. In this way they have four hours of standard group lessons per day in which they work on their general Spanish skills and then they have an additional one or two hours of One to One Spanish Private Lessons each day in which they focus on their Medical Spanish.

The Importance of Business Spanish

The grand majority of world's population works in some sort of business - negotiating contracts, brainstorming ideas and situations, risk analysis, importing/exporting, human resources, sales, etc. And we live in a global economy, so why not broaden your business' horizons and learn Spanish? Open your business to new and exciting markets. Become a more complete employer. On the other hand, if you're planning to open a business in Latin America, learning Spanish is a must. Or if you've already started one and don't know any Spanish, don't leave it until it's too late: you definitively need Spanish to sustainably succeed, show respect, and gain trust in the Latin American business community.

FIND MORE ABOUT OUR BUSINESS SPANISH COURSES...
Everyone likes to do business with someone they trust. The first step of gaining trust is common understanding, which begins with speaking the same language. The benefits of learning Spanish reach from the executive level to the laborers level - imagine the ability to give a presentation to a boardroom of Latin American associates, speak directly to your laborers during negotiations, win a sale with a Spaniard company because of shared understanding.

Spanish for Spanish Teachers

Teaching Spanish as a non-native Spanish speaker is no easy task, especially when it comes to tricky grammatical aspects, and let's not even mention accents. Not only must a teacher be able to master them all, but he or she also needs to demonstrate and explain them properly to his or her students, and even more importantly get them speaking and understanding the Spanish language. The same is true for Spanish expressions, and cultural aspects. Our Spanish for Teachers Program will focus on those areas that still need fine tuning, as well as helping you improve the quality of your Spanish classes back home. Whether you need help improving your own speaking/writing skills, or you're just looking for tips about how to explain certain grammar aspects or topics to your own students, our custom tailored program will help you fill the gaps.

LEARN MORE ABOUT OUR SPANISH COURSES FOR TEACHERS...
Our Spanish for Teachers Course if offered to teachers of all disciplines (arts, science, business, finance, medical or literature), as well as of all age groups (preschool, high school and university teachers). We also have plenty of experience teaching Spanish teachers how to teach Spanish as a foreign language.
