EALTHYThis session is presented in partnership with EALTHY, the world’s leading association for teachers of English for Healthcare.  

Alexia really knows her stuff. She teaches student and professional nurses around the world to communicate accurately, effectively and empathically with patients and colleagues.

It looks at three areas:

  1. Using a patient information leaflet for vocabulary, collocation and role play

It has a strong practical focus so you will come away with lots of ideas you can use in your classroom.
