This Beginning Medical Spanish course, tailored for pharmacy students, is an opportunity to become comfortable with conversational Spanish and medical vocabulary in various pharmaceutical contexts.

Language learning is both academic and experiential. You will need to memorize new vocabulary, think about how it pulls together to form a complete thought, and PRACTICE!

Therefore, each class session will include a combination of new learning, and lots of practice! The best way to approach it is to be relaxed and not care about making mistakes with the language. So, be ready to relax, experiment, and LEARN SPANISH!

Additional Course Details

  • Each week of the semester, a new lesson will open up for you to watch the instructional videos, take notes, and build your Spanish vocabulary. You will have several days to watch the video lessons and learn the related vocabulary & grammar concepts.
  • Once a week, you will meet online with your classmates for a live practice session on the Zoom video conferencing platform. Your instructor will email you weekly with login details for our live online practice sessions via Zoom.
  • You can use any device you like to login to the zoom practice sessions (computer, tablet, mobile phone). Whichever device you choose to use should be equipped with a video camera and earphones/microphones for reducing background noise on the conference. Get Zoom setup on your device.

Tips for success in this course:

  1. Study little by little throughout the week in between practice sessions. Don’t try and cram the information the day or morning before your scheduled practice session. Do your best to complete the lesson content at latest 2 days before your practice session and review your notes the day before your practice session.
  2. Download & Print the lesson notes & actually take notes on them during the lesson videos. The more you physically write this content out, the easier it is to learn it.
  3. Give special attention to the vocabulary delivered throughout this course. Study it Span>Eng & Eng>Span before you move on. Use quizlet or write your own flashcards out.
  4. ALWAYS attend the live practice sessions whether you finished the lesson or not. Academic knowledge of a language is pretty useless if you’ve never taken the time to practice it.
  5. Study for your quizzes like any other test you would take – that will allow you to focus on the actual questions and tasks to complete during the quiz instead of being distracted by not knowing certain vocabulary, etc.

I’m very satisfied with this course. The pace was great for a beginner like myself, and the lessons were very clear and easy to follow. The course material is very relevant to the pharmacy setting and has already improved my ability to communicate with Spanish speaking patients.

The class was very organized and presented the topics in a way that was enjoyable. I did not have much background before this and I now have a much better understanding. Rory Foster was my instructor and he was great! He did anything that was needed to further my learning.

Rory was phenomenal at presenting the information and made the online videos interesting to watch that you were able to do on your own time. The live classes made it easy to solidify the language better in actual conversation, making it easier to transfer directly into real life scenarios.

This course was a great way to dust off the Spanish skills that I learned back in high school and to apply it to my future profession in pharmacy. This is a high paced course and you learn a lot if you take time to dedicate to studying. Very applicable content and a very effective instructor!

I took the Beginning Spanish For Pharmacists course with Rory Foster and I had a great time while learning another language. The content is very straightforward and exactly how learning a language should be. It is especially applicable to those in the medical field so that is a plus. Rory is incredibly nice, understanding and encouraging. He made the class a lot of fun. I recommend anyone with an interest in medical spanish take this course!

I have a very limited Spanish background and was still able to learn a ton of language related to patients and pharmacy. I enjoyed this course and I am looking forward to taking more Spanish courses in the future.

This class is a good refresher if you've already taken a spanish course in the past! It is fast paced, but you learn a lot in a short amount of time. I've been able to use things I've learned in this class with my spanish speaking patients.

This course was a great asset to my career and none of the other Spanish classes I have taken compare to this one. I loved that instead of just having written exams and quizzes all the time, Leslie spent more time making sure we could have a conversation that would be understood by both parties than just remembering line. I would recommend CG if you are looking to learn Spanish in a very low stress, fun environment.

This course is great for beginner Spanish speakers who want to learn how to communicate with their patient population (or have an interest in medical Spanish in general) and practice their Spanish speaking skills. Topics are easy to understand and build on the material from the previous lecture which really helps in putting everything together at the end. This course definitely prepares and enables you to communicate in Spanish and understand the same at a beginner level.
