What my students say
¨This course was extremely helpful. Thank you for being an excellent instructor, tailoring the course to meet our needs and level of Spanish knowledge, and for using a variety of learning styles to teach the course. I highly recommend the course for other residents. I look forward to applying what I learned when working with Spanish-speaking pediatric patients and families in the future.¨
¨This was an absolutely phenomenal Medical Spanish course that exceeded my expectations. Ms. Gonzalez is a brilliant instructor and encouraged us to practice our Spanish throughout the course, correcting as appropriate with a nonjudgemental tone. I really valued practicing many medical encounters in Spanish and felt there was a perfect mix of vocabulary review, practice, reading Spanish articles, and Ms. Gonzalez sharing relevant info. All homework assignments were thoughtfully chosen and useful for learning.¨
¨This was an absolutely amazing class. It met all my wishes and goals for a medical Spanish course. Ana is a teacher that knows how to strike the balance between affirming and pushing. She clearly recognizes and conveys what information will be most important for us as we use Spanish in our particular context in the future.¨
