About Our Method
Chicago Clerkships offers a quick and fun way to learn to take a
medical history in Spanish with live, low-cost, online small-group
classes. By the end of the course, you will be able to indicate “basic” level
Spanish on your ERAS application and state that you can take a basic
medical history in Spanish.
The course includes two 60 to 75-minute classes per week for four
weeks with expert teacher Emelie Viklund, who has lived in Mexico for
ten years and taught Spanish for several years at Habla Spanish
Language School in Merida, Yucatan. Classes are offered via Zoom conferencing, and are open to Chicago Clerkships clients and others.
Each session will utilize what is called the “direct” or “natural”
method where teaching is conducted in the target language. We will
use drawings, written materials, and photos to convey basic messages,
as well as call and response, and lots of listening/speaking
