New Spanish for Healthcare Professionals Class Begins April 28 at Maria Oliveira Language Learning Center

Spanish for Healthcare Providers begins April 28 at the Maria Oliveira Language Learning Center. This specialized and intensive course for healthcare professionals provides continuing education hours while enhancing effective communication between patients and healthcare providers. Designed specifically for professionals and employees who interact with Spanish-speaking clients, the Spanish for Healthcare Professionals class can improve communication with Spanish-speaking clients in screenings, interviews, diagnostics and more.

"Our classes feature small groups of ten or fewer students so that there is more time for individual attention which, of course, leads to faster learning," explains Maria Oliveira, director of Maria Oliveira Language Learning Center, located in Richmond, California. "We work closely with our students to guide them towards becoming bilingual, whether it is through a conversational language class, online options, or even our language classes for healthcare and social services professionals."

The Language Learning Center also offers online courses, workbooks, and CDs for students. These materials can supplement their classroom learning through study aids such as practice lessons, self-tests with interactive exercises, quizzes, and audio clips to review correct pronunciations.

Recognizing that individuals learn languages differently, there are a variety of other programs offered to meet students' needs, such as one-on-one instruction; learning groups that meet weekly; and free social hours for students to practice their language skills with teachers, fellow students, and bilingual guests. Maria Oliveira Language Learning Center also has specialized English classes for non-native speakers, plus special classes on specific topics, such as classes on Spanish reflexive verbs and pronouns, for those students who need a review.

Maria Oliveira's goal is to guide students towards becoming bilingual by teaching basic phrases and sentences that become usable in a very short period of time. This quick success builds confidence, which in turn makes the learning process enjoyable, productive and effective. Her special combinations of affordability, convenience, and an encouraging environment makes Maria Oliveira's classes and programs the top choice for effective language learning. CEU's available!

"For a student to achieve and thrive, BOTH the student and the teacher must work hard together in a safe, comfortable learning environment that fosters enjoyment of learning and an appreciation for language and culture." - Maria Oliveira

"The workbooks, Cd's, website and classes have all been very helpful. My confidence is truly building and I am beginning to feel more comfortable communicating in this great language. I am very grateful for Maria's classes and I recommend her to anyone who is thinking of learning the language for the first time or thinking of returning to learning the language." - Artrese Morrison
