Reviews & Accolades

  • I have tried multiple Spanish apps and this is the best by far. Good variety of phrases with audio available for help with pronunciation. The phrases are organized in a way that makes them easily accessible. I highly recommend this program.

  • This app comes in handy to learn as well as use when you are trying to communicate with the patient. It lets you ask the patient common medical questions just by tapping on the question so the patient can hear it. I also like the tools that have numbers, days of the week, etc.

  • My not-so-proficient Spanish has benefitted from this app's helpful features. Just familiarizing myself with the more common medical questions has boosted my speaking confidence in the clinical nursing setting, and the audio file is great for clarifying questions of pronunciation.
