Thanks Rory and Leslie, for getting back to me in a timely manner.

Mastering Medical Spanish (MMS) is what I have been searching for for years. It structures your learning into themed lesson plans with appropriate vocabulary & grammar to address specific aspects of your conversations with patients. The course begins with you identifying your 5 most common patient types (specific diseases, procedures, etc.) and focusing on what you need to get through a full encounter in Spanish. With Intercambio up and running, you can partner with a native Spanish speaker to work on pronunciation and listening skills.
Rory & Leslie are fun and engaging teachers, and the breakout sessions provide a great opportunity to put what you’ve been working on into practice. To get the most out of this course, be prepared to put some time into it – depending on your starting level of Spanish, about 3-6 hours a weeks. I strongly recommend this course.

If you are looking for a Spanish glass with a teacher that is extremely available and invested in your learning this program is for you. I have taken 4 classes with common ground International and went to Ecuador with a group last fall. The last class I took was the Mastering Medical Spanish online via Zoom. This class gives you the flexibility to study at your own pace and have the opportunity for real one-on-one conversation with people from around the world as well as weekly group classes. Every week there is a new focus on structure/conjugation/etc. with new medical vocab words. I could take the things I was learning directly to work and practice with my patients. I also had the opportunity to focus my learning on my specialty. Highly recommend this class and any other classes Common Ground International International provides.

I have been taking many courses and done 3 immersion programs with Common Ground International and I am never disappointed. Rory and Leslie are both exceptional teachers and responsive to feedback and will make changes as they get input to meet students’ needs. My Spanish speaking and comprehension skills have improved dramatically over the years that I have worked with Common Ground and Rory and Leslie get credit for helping me achieve that. The Mastering Medical Spanish online course could not have come at a more perfect time with everything in this world having to go remote due to the corona virus. Rory did a masterful job of presenting over Zoom and making interactive learning materials available to enhance our learning. The conversation portion has also been very helpful with native Spanish speakers from Latin American countries partnering with English speaking students.

I could not recommend this course enough. It is filled with tons of practical knowledge and you can start practicing Spanish with your patients from the first lesson. Leslie and Rory provide excellent support and have such a positive energy. I am so glad I took this course but I still have a lot of work ahead as learning a new language is not something that you can master in 3 months. Now, I understand my patients and can catch if the interpreter in my clinic is not saying what I said. Highly recommend.


Highly recommend. Rory and Leslie are fantastic teachers and if you put in the time and effort, you will improve your medical spanish.

I’ve been on & off with my Medical Spanish studies for several years. I have to complete 20 CE hours every 2 years and end up with one or two hours of Spanish for nurses. I occasionally volunteer in a clinic with many Spanish speakers and I decided I could do better. When I started searching for something online, I came across the Video Viernes. I found that I benefited from the techniques. I signed up for the MMS course to receive a very structured course that involved a routine of lessons and conversation. I’m continuing with the intercambio to further my conversation skills. Thanks Common Ground International.

I highly recommend this course. There are videos with downloadable powerpoint notes and an app called Quizlet which qizzes you on the material. We had an hour live session with Rory weekly where we reviewed the week’s material and practiced speaking with each other in chat rooms with Rory’s guidance. The content is comprehensive and well-presented. Rory created a very supportive environment. By the end of the course I felt a lot better about speaking spanish. The course also provides a section where you can post your availability and find someone to practice spanish with during the week. I was lucky to connect with an M.D. in Washington state and we still practice.

I really enjoyed the Mastering Medical Spanish online Class. It was a great format and I look forward to taking more of their classes in the future as I have more to learn!
