OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERACommon Ground’s Medical Spanish Immersion programs are unique in that we place a strong emphasis on equipping our medical volunteers to be direct care givers.  Everyone benefits when you can comfortably, confidently, and responsibly communicate with your Spanish-only patients.  Developing your Spanish skills is a main priority of Common Ground’s because we know that this medical mission will affect you in ways that will undoubtedly push you toward serving the Spanish-only population back in your community in the United States after your return home.

Your Instructors: Your Spanish classes are all taught by native Spanish speakers who are professional teachers.

Class Times: Spanish classes meet Monday – Friday. Depending on the program specifics, you may have class from 8am – 12pm or from 1pm – 5pm.  You’ll have a little 20 minute cafecito break mid-way through your 4hr block of Spanish Classes.

Course Content: You will be learning a mixture of general conversational Spanish and medical Spanish.  Both are necessary for a well rounded ability to use Spanish with your patients at home and abroad.
