The main objective of this class is to expose you to realistic simulated medical encounters in the three main interpreting modes where you will be able to practice terminology about labs, tests, diagnoses, pharmacology and surgery used in cardiology.

Comprehend and interpret medical terms in both languages.
Define and pronounce correctly unfamiliar words and terms.

A voice recording device or smartphone with voice recording capability.
A set of headphones for the simultaneous exercise of the class.
A functioning printer to print your worksheets.
You will be thoroughly guided by the instructor on how to successfully complete each exercise and instantly get your certificate of completion.
