ESPANOL CONVERSACIONAL PARA PROFESIONES MEDICAS

MANUAL DE ACTIVIDADES
Karol Hardin & Allyson Irom
2016

This book differs from many current medical Spanish textbooks; it is a collection of orally-focused role-plays and activities rather than a traditional five-area text.  Oriented to fourth-semester intermediate Spanish learner, the manual contains communication-centered, classroom-tested activities that mirror real-life medical interviews.  The activities reflect research on oral/aural and cultural needs of the medical profession and move away from a focus on the written text.  Instead, our primary goal is to maximize oral input and production during class time.

The authors consulted with a bilingual family physician and selected conversational expressions based on their frequency and usefulness in primary care contexts.  The vocabulary also apppears in useful frames (questions or sentences) instead of isolated word lists in an effort to help learners interact with the expressions and appropriately apply grammar in realistic contexts.
