Publisher Comments:

A leader in the field of accent reduction helps you speak the English you need for your medical field more clearly and comfortably

Even though you know the vocabulary, you still find it difficult to pronounce English medical terms correctly. This struggle with your new language can make communicating with native English patients a frustrating experience for both you and them. Now you can gain confidence in your English skills and speak like an American with this focused, nonintimidating program.

Improve Your American English Accent: Medical English is an easy and enjoyable way to learn and master the most challenging American English speech characteristics. Since it's impossible to give the pronunciation of every word in the medical field, author Charlsie Childs focuses on medical terminology to demonstrate that the changes of stress, duration and clarity are critical to understanding. This way you can polish the lexicon you need and freely communicate with your patients.

Features Three 60-minute CDs and a pronunciation booklet most common suffixes found in the medical fields--those that cause a change in stress and result in new vowel changes
