This book and accompanying CD are designed for health care professionals who are rusty in their speaking and listening skills or who studied Spanish many years ago. Hundreds of novice learners have found the handbook and CD extremely effective because, after six weeks, they are able to speak and understand short Spanish phrases and sentences in health-related environments. If you want to learn how to communicate with Spanish-speaking clients, this book and CD are for you. The handbook is organised into a series of six pasos, or steps, each designed to be a lesson. Each paso presents seven exercises or activities designed to engage the novice in learning, practising, and using health care Spanish. The accompanying CD presents a series of dialogues that occur frequently in both administrative and clinical settings.
