Language Learning Tools: In-Person Language Learning Opportunities

PLEASE NOTE: Federal & state law as well as the Joint Commission mandate that Baystate Health provides trained medical interpreters to patients with limited or no fluency in English. Use of educational tools is for relationship-building purposes only.

Local Opportunity

Learning to communicate with people in a second language is a thrilling experience.  Please keep in mind that you must study for years to become sufficiently fluent to interact with patients or their family members in your non-native language in a medical setting. 


International Language Institute

If you’d like to stay local but receive some structured language courses, please contact The International Language Institute of Massachusetts in Northampton.


 

Travel Opportunity

 For an adventure and an intensive language and cultural learning experience, please review the various programs offered through Language Link.  The program in Antigua, Guatemala continues to be the best deal in terms of language instruction and cost.
