Editorial Reviews

"What makes this book stand out is the fact that the authors are themselves medical interpreters and the book has been tested in classrooms. . . . [The book] consistently adheres to the principles of communicative language teaching, which focus on the functional language and its appropriate use in context. . . . The choice of topics is excellent, and the cultural notes show a particular sensitivity toward the Latino population."—Pilar Marcé, University of Iowa, The Modern Language Journal"This book is original and based on a sound knowledge of the Spanish language. The exercises are practical and enjoyable, engaging students in typical situations that might occur in clinic or hospital settings."—Anthony LaBruzza, Yale Medical School and Greater Bridgeport Community Mental Health Center
