Thoughts from recent Beginning 1 Medical Spanish students:
I have used my new skills 3 times sense the class ended. We have many Spanish speaking patients and I can tell they appreciate me communicating with them! The following day after our last class, I met a pt who was being discharged. I needed her to come to my clinic the next day and I was able to introduce myself and tell her and her family to come to the clinic. Hillarie G.
Abby is very engaging and makes the class interactive which helps after coming off a 10 hour work day. I still need a lot more work before I’m functional, but I’ve gotten better with vocabulary which has helped in my interactions with patients (understanding if they want to eat, walk, etc.) but I want to become more conversational.

I have been on light duty so I have not been having patient contact. It’s been fun knowing what others are talking about throughout the hospital and being able to read all the billboards in my neighborhood! Michelle P
The instructor was very energetic and kept strong interest through class. I’ve been able to help people around the hospital and understand their basic concerns. Whitney
