The course was really fun and interactive online. The activities, games, and lessons during class made the learning experience very positive and encouraging. Both Rory and Stephanie are excellent professors who always made sure we got support and help whenever needed. I learned a lot from them both and appreciate the class!

Stephanie was great! She is very knowledgeable and great at teaching. She is very patient with us all and doesn't criticize when we make mistakes. Rory's modules are very informative and clear to follow along before we have live practice with Stephanie.

Rory was amazing. He was very encouraging without being overly critical or condescending. Rory made it comfortable to try and fail when speaking in front of the class. There was no judgment, he just worked to correct any errors in a friendly and helpful manner.

This course completely covers all pharmacy related topics and is conducted in such a way as to help you retain the information. With an hour-long live discussion session each week, talking to others in Spanish is prioritized, which is incredibly beneficial when it comes to learning a language. The class is fun, and the instructor is kind and patient to all of the students. I will be working in an environment where I will be caring for many Spanish-speaking patients upon graduation, and I believe this course and all of the resources provided have 100% set me up for success in my future career! I absolutely could not have asked for a better medical Spanish course; I learned so much!

This class does an amazing job of engaging students and providing applicable knowledge to medical practice. I had taken some Spanish classes previously and this course built on and solidified my previous knowledge as well as provided lots of new/medical focused terminology to help engage with Spanish speaking patients.

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.

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!

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.

I have studied Spanish for many years, but this class allowed me to focus on medical terminology and aspects of the language that I had never focused on. Rory was a great instructor. We had a small class size which allowed for easy communication and individual practice with the language with feedback from the class and Rory. He was very engaging and encouraging and had a great attitude. I loved how class sessions were focused on the speaking, there is no better way to learn a language than to speak it.

I have been studying Spanish for several years. However, I can honestly say this class significantly improved my ability to communicate in Spanish in a medical setting. This class drastically improved my medical terminology and it was quite interactive, despite transitioning to an online platform. You can study at your own pace with plenty of study material. I would highly suggest this course for anyone working to improve their communication skills in Spanish. Plus, Rory was a great instructor!

If you're going into this class as a beginner, like I was, you will have to spend a good amount of time and effort studying the material and memorizing the vocabulary. However, at the end of this course I do truly feel more confident with my Spanish and I know I will be able to help my patients way more than I ever could before. Also, a big bonus of this course is that Rory has embedded notecards in each module to help you study.

Rory is the best. He is so kind and understanding, and always answers questions without judgement. It was easy to practice Spanish with him because,, even if you messed up, there was no fear of judgement. The course gave me tools to be able to speak with Spanish-speaking patients in the pharmacy, without having to speak in broken Spanglish or call a translator. I'm excited to put these tools to the test!

I haven't spoken Spanish since I was in high school so having this class to refresh my memory and learn more was extremely helpful. Rory did an excellent job at making the class engaging and fun. My favorite part being when he wrote silly songs and dressed up to help us remember conjugations! This course definitely required me to put in some time to stay on top and do well on the quizzes but it was worth it because I can now communicate with my patients in the pharmacy. I used to be useless when spanish speaking customers came in to the pharmacy but now I can understand and do my best to provide the care the deserve! Thanks Common Ground International!

I hadn't spoken any Spanish in years and was a little unsure about diving back into a foreign language in the classroom. I needn't have worried, though, because Rory and the other teachers at Common Ground International were fantastic are engaging students and making class fun. They listened to us, the students, and customized what they were teaching based on our needs. Learning a new language is difficult, but if you are willing to put a little regular time in you will make noticeable gains in this class. I highly recommend it and hope to return at some point soon!

    1. Hello Mary, yes anyone working in the pharmacy setting with Spanish speaking clients will benefit from these courses. However, we have not accredited this curriculum through the APhA – their pricing structure is astronomical.

  1. This is the best forum to learn Spanish for medical professionals. I have had the great opportunity to learn Spanish under Rory’s teaching. He is an amazing teacher. His courses are focused, easily accessible, affordable and top notch. Look no further for a great Spanish course.
