Language courses for medical professions


French & Spanish for Medical Professions 

The Modern Language Centre, King's College London will be running Level 1 (beginner) and Level 5 (advanced) language courses in French & Spanish for the medical professions. 

Don't want to rely on a translator when speaking to a patient?

If you are planning to work abroad in a French or Spanish speaking country then our courses are for you! Or you may be planning on working for humanitarian organisations like Doctors without Borders or the Red Cross. No matter where your career takes you in a globalised and interconnected world being able to assist someone in their target language without the use of a translator can only be an advantage. 

French & Spanish are generally one of the offical languages spoken in NGO's. Our courses are designed to reflect the needs that you will encounter when working in a French or Spanish speaking hospital or field environment.  

Are you a beginner?

Our Level 1 course is ideal for you as not only does it teach you the building blocks of the target language but more specialist elements are added. For example, navigating from hematology to radiography and how to greet your patient.
