ESL for Health: Dile al Doctor
ESL for Health: Dile al Doctor is a Web site for Spanish-speakers aiming to increase their ability to converse in English with healthcare professionals. The site is based around video tutorials. In the first part of each video segment, the learner interprets for a Spanish-speaking patient. In the second part of the video segment the same patient models speaking the English translation. Working with an instructor, the learner compares his or her translation with the “real” translation to identify gaps in vocabulary and grammar. The learner can then use the vocabulary pages and the instructor’s help to fill these gaps.
