About This Program

When deciding between vital choices about the wellbeing of a patient, any medicinal expert would say that having the full image of that patient is key. Yes, the lab test can give doctors a snapshot of the patient, but garnering the power to make a confident decision requires an ability to converse, communicate, and truly connect through language.

Medical Spanish Immersion Program at Tico Lingo is intended for simply that; to get students speaking and associating with the greater part of their patients on a level never thought conceivable.

Highlights

  • Learn to speak Spanish while in the medical field
  • Take a day trip to La Fortuna Waterfall
  • Enjoy the wildlife while walking through Arenal Volcano National Park
  • Take a day trip to one of Costa Rica's many hot springs

The program is intended to be taken over a 60 hour time span assuming your level of Spanish is already at an intermediate level (B1)

Courses will cover Spanish expressions, wording, and vocabulary that every medical expert needs. Once we've established a strong foundation of the essentials, specific and targeted vocabulary is taught based on each student's particular field.
