I am now able to communicate with my Spanish-speaking patients.” She added, “You offer you an invaluable service, particularly to medical personnel and students. The classes are inexpensive and incredibly flexible. Speak Shop has offered me the ability to fit Spanish classes into my extremely hectic and unpredictable schedule. I have been able to develop a individual relationship with my teacher, Aracely, who is in Guatemala. In addition to improving my grammar, she has helped me recognize cultural issues which are quite pertinent to my Latin American patients.” Kara will get a Speak Shop t-shirt and lifelong thanks.
