Learn to communicate effectively with your Spanish speaking patients and their families in just five hours!
Have you always wanted to learn Spanish but never found the time or the right teacher? Are you having trouble communicating with your Spanish speaking patients? Did you study Spanish in school, including medical school, but find yourself unable to construct even simple sentences in Spanish?
This book is for doctors, nurses, emergency medical personnel, and all medical professionals in need of a Spanish beginners or refresher course. Due to our unique method of teaching, you will be amazed at how much Spanish you will learn and retain in just five hours!
What makes this Spanish course special?
Our breakthrough method allows you to retain most if not all of what you learn and immediately put it to use. The key is interactivity: instead of making you repeat words and sentences, you are encouraged to think and apply what you learned. Using the words and concepts you learn throughout the course, you will build Spanish sentences and translate Spanish sentences into English right from the start. The course also makes use of the many similarities between English and Spanish, so you can associate new Spanish words with English words you already know.
You'll learn relevant words and sentences that you can put to use immediately. This will allow you to reinforce what you've learned through real life practice and motivate you to complete the course.
This course only takes about five hours to complete. Many people buy expensive Spanish courses and never find the time to complete the course. But you should be able to find five hours. Even if you only study for half an hour each day, you'll be done in a little more than a week!
Learning should be fun and rewarding. It is hard to describe the pleasure you experience when you manage to construct complete sentences in Spanish after just half an hour into the course. In addition, the course is peppered with quotes and anecdotes, to help keep the learning fun and exciting.

Besides being an RN, I am an avid audiobook listener as well as a narrator and producer for Audible. I love Audiobooks!
I have been meaning to take a Spanish course since I am a nurse and lately have quite a few Spanish speaking only patients. This is a great book for general medical Spanish.
Unfortunately, my area of practice (obstetrics and NICU) is quite specific and this book was not all that helpful to me.
It was well done though, and the narrator did a great job of giving the listener time to repeat the words and offer encouragement. I would recommend this book to medical personel in general as it is well done.
I was gifted this book in return for an honest review.
As a resident training in a hospital with many Spanish speaking patients, this was a great primer for how to interact with patients, and it was easy to get through on my daily commute. I hope the author comes out with another version for doctors geared towards interviewing patients and explaining common procedures or medications. It would be an invaluable tool.
As one of countless nurses who can muddle reading Spanish but have never finished a course tried, and having many Spanish speaking or ESL patients I can easily testify that this is the most specifically useful that I have ever seen. The teaching method is tailored to those of us who are lacking in free time but not desire to learn. We all know that ESL diminishes under stress, so being able to ask and/or instruct a patient in their own tongue is most desirable. The construction of the lessons is logical and applied, making it easy to assimilate.
The audio performer has a pleasant voice with clear pronunciation and diction which leaves no room for interpretational error. Hearing is believing.
I was fortunate to have received this audiobook as a gift
I am a conversationally fluent MD. This is at a pretty low introductory level. I didn't realize that when I bought it. Nevertheless, well done.
Love it...going to start my next review of text to master it. It will be of great value...have wish I took Spanish instead of French in high school.
I took just a little bit of time off in my busy schedule, and really got to learn Spanish. Its amazing what just a few minutes of listening can do! I can definitely communicate with people a lot better now in Spanish.

This book made me feel great about my Spanish speaking skills. However, I wish that there were more advanced versions of it because learning medical interpretation warrants acclimating your ear to sophisticated medical terminology which I mistakenly thought that I was getting. But if you want the basics they teach them in a pretty helpful way. It wasn't a complete waste of time for me even though it was remedial.
