French for doctors.
Delivering good care starts with a proper conversation. You want to reassure your patients, give them clear information about their state of health and ask them the right questions in order to make the correct diagnosis. You want your patients to feel they are in safe, capable hands. But how do you do that when they don’t speak the same language as you?
Could this be for you?
You already have command of French to an intermediary level. That means you already speak French reasonably effortlessly in familiar situations. You are a doctor or consultant in a hospital or working on an independent basis. You want to be able to hold conversations in French, and give patients advice, confidence, reassurance and support. If you want to arrive at a diagnosis efficiently, it is important that you understand everything the patient is saying so that you can take the appropriate action.
This course was developed for and by doctors. That means you will learn precisely those skills you need to do your job well.
What you can do after this course
- Examine a patient and ask them questions.
- Respond in a patient-friendly manner in difficult, delicate situations.
- Make the correct diagnosis and describe this properly.
- Explain the treatment.
Absolutely! The course includes an e-learning platform with a wealth of information in addition to the hours with the trainer. The platform is designed specifically for medical professionals. You can use it to practice on your own between lessons. In the lessons themselves, we also pay a lot of attention to practice and speaking.
You don’t just learn lists of words, you learn how to use those words correctly in sentences. This course is about more than just general medical language use.
Wat onze klanten, trainers en cursisten zeggen.
Virtual learning is very efficient as it can flexibly adapt both to work and private schedules. Despite being undoubtedly the future of training, it is true that this form requires motivation and self-discipline in order to be effective. Because of the lack of fixed timeslots and usually the absence of classmates, one might have the tendency to skip sessions and therefore lose pace. To avoid this, motivation can be boosted up by tailoring the learning content upon items that you really need, that you truly like, and that help improve your skills. My personal experience with the BLCC courses is very positive, having followed German classes for several years and I can express my full satisfaction about the teachers’ professionalism and competence.
“I find it important to speak the language of the country where I’m working so I can hold a simple conversation in that language with my employees. My language teacher is very professional. She adapts the lessons to suit my learning style.”
“Melanie taught me English, with an exclusive focus on my professional field. That means I am now able to do my coaching sessions in Manchester as well. Even my friends and colleagues soon noticed a big improvement in my English!”
“I feel much more comfortable now when on the phone. I can express myself more fluently in French as well when giving presentations and I no longer worry so much about the mistakes I make.”
“I was looking for a course that focused on speaking, in the sales context rather than general speaking skills. BLCC listened perfectly to my specific requirements. The trainer was very knowledgeable.”
“I have regular lessons via Skype and I’m already reaping benefits from those lessons. I recently advanced one level. My French has genuinely improved: I notice the difference in my contact with colleagues, clients and journalists. I’d give BLCC an 11 out of 10!”
“I did a German course for my job, but I found learning German an enriching experience personally as well. What I liked most about the BLCC training was the trainer’s personal touch. She focused completely on my requirements and wishes.”
