Workplace Spanish for Health Care Workers.
This syllabus and curriculum guide were developed for a 12-week course in workplace Spanish for clinical workers at the Claretian Medical Center on the south side of Chicago. The purpose of the class was to provide basic communicative abilities in Spanish to the medical staff---registered nurses, triage nurses, and laboratory technologists--such as saying greetings, understanding patient injuries and illnesses, and asking simple questions. Topics for each of the 12 weeks include the following: greetings, letters of the alphabet, and numbers; days and dates; body parts; times, symptoms; family members, internal organs; medicinal warning labels; vocabulary; clinic; giving directions; listening skills; food and diet; and review and posttest. Each week's outline lists objectives and activities. (YLB)
