Pronounce Drug Names Like a Pro Online Course https://www.kimnewlove.com
I’m publishing one podcast episode per day in the month of November 2020 as part of a challenge called NaPodPoMo. It stands for National Podcast Post Month. November is National Podcast Post Month, and the goal of the challenge is 30 podcast episodes in 30 days. This is a bite-sized episode, which I’m using to help promote my new online course: Pronounce Drug Names Like a Pro.
The topic today is pronunciation challenges for anyone learning English as a second language. In pharmacy school, I had friends who grew up overseas, including India, Romania, Bosnia, and Brazil. As college students, they were still learning English. Plus, they were learning medical terminology, drug names, and everything else I was learning. I gave them a lot of credit. They passed the same classes I did, and they certainly earned their pharmacy degrees!
Miscommunications in the healthcare sector can be life-threatening. It’s very important to be able to read, listen, speak, and write in English in the US to avoid miscommunications. When English is not your first language, learning drug names can be a challenge. Not only do you need to know the English alphabet, but you also have to know when to use long and short vowel sounds, and how to apply drug name pronunciation rules. If you need help pronouncing drug names, my online course can help. There are videos of me pronouncing dozens of drug names in the course. You can see my mouth move. Plus, I break the drug names into syllables and teach you strategies for breaking them down further.
I know what it’s like to want to fit in with everyone else. Pronouncing drug names can be hard. Pronounce Drug Names Like a Pro is an online course that can help.
