The objective of the course is to learn about Healthcare in Spain by immersing the student totally into the Spanish language and culture. The course consists of 125 lessons of General Spanish and Spanish for Healthcare. There are five lessons per day from 9 AM to 2 PM. Prior knowledge of Spanish is NOT required. Students will be divided into groups according to their proficiency in Spanish. All of the lessons are taught by specially trained instructors at the Pamplona Learning Spanish Institute that are skilled in teaching healthcare topics in Spanish to beginning and more advanced Spanish speaking students.
The learning objectives for the healthcare component of the course will be the same which is to learn about healthcare in today’s Spain. The lessons on these topics will be taught through classroom lectures while learning Spanish and through field laboratory excursions to manufacturing plants, banks, governmental agencies, healthcare organizations, museums, wineries, research centers, newspaper and magazine publishers, and other organizations. There are eighteen to twenty field laboratories during the five weeks in Spain. On these excursions,a Spanish to English translator is used to help educate the student about the healthcare environments that are being toured. This is the only time a translator is utilized.
The objectives for General Spanish will depend on the initial level of the student. Students with little or no Spanish will focus on the following functional goals in the use of the language.
Students with more Spanish speaking abilities will be expected to broaden their use of Spanish in business. For example, these students will be expected to do the following:
