Wonderful teacher and a class that targets high yield concepts that are important for communication and often confusing for learners.

This course was what I needed throughout all of medical school! I’m glad I dedicated a month to refreshing my Spanish skills. I feel like I was able to get the clinical basics down and now I can continue practicing on my own. The only thing is that I wish we were provided a reference book!


This was a great review course for me. It had been a long time since I had spoken Spanish so this was exactly what I needed to brush up on my skills. It went through and quickly reviewed many of the verb tenses as well as major grammatical points. And somehow, for the first time, I feel that I finally understand when to use the subjunctive! The one thing I wish would have been different about this class was more instruction from a native Spanish speaker as that would have helped me improve my understanding and my own pronunciation even more.


Overall a great class! I learned so much and am grateful that I was able to improve my ability to speak and communicate in Spanish effectively and will hopefully be able to better serve my future Spanish-speaking patients.


This course was great! Improved my Spanish an immense amount and I’ll definitely be using all the skills I learned in the real world.


This class was very helpful, it gave me the opportunity to expand my Spanish knowledge and practice with patients.


Rory was an excellent and engaging teacher, the coursework was well organized, and I feel the practice during this course strengthened my Spanish skills to the level where I can interact with Spanish-speaking patients.


Very helpful class! The skills I learned in the classroom are directly applicable to clinical practice and will improve my ability to serve Spanish-speaking patients.

Great course! Education is specifically directed towards a clinical focus and also provides enough basic Spanish to support the more advanced aspects of clinical Spanish speaking skills.

This class was a game changer for me. My Spanish skills improved 5-fold with this class. I liked that there was a combination of classroom and clinical experiences. Every subject was highly relevant to future practice. The instructor, Rory, brought great energy and excitement.

Great investment for those who have a background knowledge of Spanish, but want to expand that to the clinical setting. Well organized and high yield content, with a dynamic classroom experience! Highly recommend this class.

Vera Staley

I truly enjoyed this course – the material covered was very high yield for clinical practice and covered many useful aspects of medical Spanish. I already feel more confident in my clinical practice when conversing with Spanish-speaking patients.

I am so glad I took this course! It was great to spend an entire month improving my Spanish language skill in such a dynamic setting. What I learned in this course will serve me very well for years to come.
