MEDIA 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 Marce,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
