Medical Spanish Phrases

Keep these medical Spanish phrases on hand - just in case! Listen carefully to the audio and repeat each Spanish phrase after the native speaker.

Whether you're traveling to Spain or Latin America on vacation or business, this free audio lesson will teach you simple medical Spanish phrases that you can add to your Spanish language survival kit.

Being surrounded by a foreign language isn't easy, especially if you have to navigate the health care system or find yourself face to face with a doctor and need to explain your illness. Having a few medical Spanish phrases on hand will make the experience a whole lot easier.

Hopefully you won’t be in a situation where you need to use the following medical Spanish phrases and words, but it’s still important to familiarize yourself with them. You might have to buy medicine from a pharmacy, where you will need to explain what your problem is and where you feel the pain… Maybe all you need is a bandage, some cough syrup, or some sleeping pills for a long haul flight...

The first two hours of my day, 5 days a week are spent on Rocket Spanish or Rocket Chinese. The single best ROI (return on investment) I've had in my life. I was raised in a bi-lingual household where Spanish was the lesser used language. So my whole life I've been waiting to learn my parents native language. Thanks Rocket Spanish for making my dream a reality.

I am a corporate pilot, and when I was in China a stranger told me the best way he found to matriculate in the country was through "Rocket Chinese" He had tried all the others and convinced this was the easiest to do.

2 1/2 years later, I am still enjoy learning first thing in the morning!

Gracias Adios por Rocket Espanol!

After trying several Spanish courses in the past without much success, I tried Rocket Spanish. It proved to be the course that helped me the most. I especially like the hear it-say it feature. This is really good for someone with a hearing problems. They can hear what they are saying
and see if it is close to what it should be. The price is very reasonable.

Hello, my name is Raymon West. I just wanted to say that I would definitely recommend Rocket Spanish to other people, I love it, it's a great program. The benefits of it is that I've been listening to it in the car as I drive, playing the games and things and it's really helped me improve my Spanish skills, especially in the area of grammar. I had some rudimentary Spanish skills but I've discovered I wasn't speaking properly and this has really helped me improve my grammar.

I live in Texas... South Texas actually, so this is helpful in communicating with the Spanish speaking people that live in my area and I also travel to Mexico quite a bit and I enjoy speaking my enhanced Spanish there now, so I really appreciate it. If other people want to buy Rocket Spanish, I think that it would be a great purchase, I would highly recommend it, I've tried other Spanish programs and this one is definitely the best. So once again, thanks for a great product.

Rocket Spanish provides a multitude of different learning styles, including audio, visual, and kinesthetic in order to maximize learning potential for each individual. It uses techniques such as repetition, direct involvement, and passive listening, all spaced out accordingly, so that the words and phrases you learn during each lesson "stick" very well. Overall, a very good product; I would recommend it to others, and hopes it helps me in my goal of semi-fluency for practicing medicine in the future!
