Spanish for the Medical Profession is a four-credit advanced-level course designed to expand students’ speaking skills beyond the practical, day-to-day language functions in a medical context. The aim is to achieve a more complex and technical proficiency of Spanish in a medical context, through the practice of pronunciation, vocabulary, idioms, and linguistic structures. Students will learn specific vocabulary related to the medical field and will engage in active conversations and role-play activities. The course will include readings as well as Spanish films and documentaries related to health and medicine. Recording, transcribing and editing actual classroom conversations will also help students improve their Spanish by focusing on individual self-correction. Listening comprehension activities related to the medical field will be included to fine-tune the student’s ear to Spanish sounds.
