The purpose of this 2-day class is to improve knowledge of health care and medical terminology in English and Spanish. Both formal and informal terminology will be reviewed, including pronunciation and definition of terms. Participants will complete their plan of study by learning and reviewing terminology grouped by systems of the body and creating scenarios for role plays, thereby contextualizing the terms in realistic situations. Participants will take turns in group activity role plays, practice high register and colloquial terminology, practice positioning and interpreter modes, and review Hispanic traditional healing terminology. Participants will practice and discuss sight translation and will be introduced to Latin and Greek roots, prefixes, and suffixes.

*Note: Spanish proficiency in reading, writing, and speaking is required, because this course is taught in Spanish. It is highly recommended that interested participants have completed Interpreter Training Levels 1 and 2.
