An immersive deep-dive into medical terminology

Medical Language: Immerse Yourself is grounded in immersive language learning. Rather than memorising vocabulary, students experience the sights and sounds of health care as they listen, speak, write, watch, examine, and think. A greater quantity and variety of exercises than any other text maximise opportunities to reinforce learning. The 5th edition retains its organisation by medical specialty – the way medicine is practiced in the real world. New to the 5th edition is a reorganisation into 15 chapters, perfect for a 16-week course, and into five sections correlated with learning outcomes. Each section ends with new Practice Laps evaluating student competency and underscoring learning goals.
