Level 1 provides the tools needed to build rapport and communicate at a basic level with Spanish-speaking patients.  Instruction covers how to read, pronounce terms and short phrases, and ask simple questions in Spanish.  Also covered is an overview of Hispanic cultural habits, beliefs, and perspectives.

Level 2 builds upon the Level I curriculum with increased Spanish grammar, vocabulary, and an overview of Hispanic cultural differences in society and the workplace.
