Listening can often be daunting in any foreign language. People often speak too fast or unclearly, and it can be difficult to keep up. the objective of this workshop is to give you an opportunity to practice listening to native and non-native English speakers all on one topic: medicine. the comprehension activities will be based around consultation videos with patients to improve your listening skills as well as journal podcasts from authentic sources, such as Jama, to help you develop strategies for understanding medical professionals and different varieties of English.

Medical students of all semesters

Students will

  • focus on listening for fine detail and statistics;
  • improve their ability to differentiate between important and unimportant information; and
  • practice giving general summaries of medical journal podcasts.
