Become fluent in medical terminology

Med Term Speak & Spell

To be fully fluent in a language, a person must be able to read, write, and converse accurately and clearly. We take the same approach to learning medical terminology— the foundational building block to a successful and safe career in healthcare. Med Term Speak & Spell is designed to start at a basic level and build your comfort level and familiarity with terms, word parts, structures, spelling, and finally, pronunciation. Each Med Term Speak & Spell module is comprised of four parts:

  • Listen and View: Listen to a pronunciation while viewing its associated image, connecting the pronunciation with the image, and then viewing the word in parts (where appropriate).
  • Listen and Identify: Listen to a pronunciation while viewing its associated image, and then choose the correct term from a pool of possible answers.
  • Listen and Spell: Listen to a pronunciation while viewing its associated image, and then correctly spell the term. You can then click “view word parts” to see the term broken into its parts (where appropriate).
  • Listen and Pronounce: To give you the ability to practice your pronunciation, you'll listen to a pronunciation while viewing the associated image. You can then practice and record your own pronunciation and play it back to compare it to the correct pronunciation. You can repeat these exercises as many times as you like.
