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...

My name is Andrea Williams. I think Rocket Spanish is a fabulous program. I've had been considering learning Spanish for a number of years but really never made the effort to do that, until I found myself with two friends from South America and suddenly had to actually converse with them in Spanish on a regular basis and while I'm still in the learning stage.

It's been a lot of fun being able to, you know, at least greet my friends in Spanish and say a few things to them and I'm hoping it will also help me in my job down the road.

But I think it's fabulous and just looking forward to getting fluent. Thank you.

My favorite thing about Rocket Spanish, it's been that it teaches you how to listen better, there is a lot of Spanish classes that teach you how to speak words, but they don't put them together the same way that the Rocket Spanish does. They don't teach you how to listen so that as you are learning you can pick out the words that you already understand, and make sense of the sentences. I've found that I have been able to understand and comprehend a lot more than I have with other lessons that I've had elsewhere. Thank you very much.

I am just starting. I am very optimistic that I will learn to speak Spanish. I was in Spain last year to Santiago de Campostela. I wanted to go back, so I decided to take this class, so I could be a little bit fluent in the language. I am hoping that after the Rocket Spanish study, I could go to Spain and enroll in one of those immersion classes. I don't want to go and be a beginner. I want to be a little more advanced.

I would definitely recommend Rocket Spanish to anyone who wants to learn Spanish in easy and quick way. I started to learn Spanish three times in various course-classes but it did not work, I usually did not have time to attend them regularly. Once I bought the Rocket Spanish course it was up to me to decide when and where I want to study. The biggest advantage for me is possibility to listen to courses on my way to work, this way I have two hours everyday to improve my Spanish and you can listen to it over and over again until you master it perfectly.

This course helped me a lot to understand my Spanish co-workers in my job - I am able to talk about our families, what are their hobbies and more, small talk with them is no problem for me anymore. And now I would definitely survive in a Spanish speaking country with my Spanish where I plan to travel.

Everybody who purchases the course can expect to gain audio lessons which they can use in everyday life situations, vocabulary which is easy to remember because of the games and grammar. This is all online so you can learn grammar wherever and whenever it is most convenient for you. Thank you again for your course. It is worth every penny I paid for it, now I'd even think it was very cheap :-)

Best regards to all of you.
