Doctors and medical professionals from all around the world need to speak English clearly and understandably to their international patients and colleagues. Learn the correct pronunciation of medical terms while learning the use of English in Medicine. Emphasis is given to the skills required in a hospital or clinic environment, such as patient approach, giving opinions and recommendation. Our Medical English course is designed to improve your confidence in your speaking and listening abilities, while also supporting progress in reading and writing skills.

Do I need to take an entry test before I book?

No, you’ll be tested on arrival to make sure you’re in a class that’s just right for your level. You will need to have an English level of B2 or above to follow the course. If your English is not at a suitable level, you may need to study general English before joining the business English course.
