Spanish Anyone?

  1. I have been trying to learn Spanish to help talk care of my Spanish speaking patients more effectively. However, I can't seem to find an appropriate reference book to help me.
    Does anyone know of one that is geared toward the medical profession. I would like one that has tapes/CD that actually pronouces the words. With out that, I can't be sure I am saying it correct.

    Try barnes and nobles if there's one by you...lots of good language things there.

    Hmmm, I never thought of that. But I don't think they will have anything just "medically" oriented. But thanks. I will go look.

    Well living here in Texas, where you would speaking espanol would be an asset. I went against the norm and decided to learn ameican sign language. Much more worthy of an endeavour in my perception. And definitely meets my hierarchy of needs. Besides Ive decided it is good for my golf grip,......

    Keep in the short grass yall

    Try contacting the armed forces representative in your area. Prior to deployment we are generaly given a medical lexicon and basic phrasology to help in all languages in the area we wil be operating in. The language school or military medical unit closest to you should be able to help. If not, let me know and I will see what I can do north of the 49th parallel.

    I wish I could learn spanish...would be such a big help at work.....if only my parents pushed me to take a language when I was in school many many moons ago...I probably woldn't be having such a hard time learning it now.

    Try to explain this to my 12 year old.....of course he takes after his mom.
