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 of a safe, successful career in healthcare. With Med Term Speak & Spell, you'll start at a basic level and build comfort and familiarity with terms, word parts, structures, spelling, and finally, pronunciation. Each Med Term Speak & Spell module consists of four parts:

  • Listen and View: Listen to a pronunciation while viewing an associated image, then see the term broken into parts, where appropriate.
  • Listen and Identify: Listen to a pronunciation while viewing an associated image, then choose the correct term from a pool of possible answers.
  • Listen and Spell: Listen to a pronunciation while viewing an associated image, then spell the words and see them broken into parts, where appropriate.
  • Listen and Pronounce: Listen to someone say the words, while viewing an associated image. You can then record your own pronunciation and compare it to the correct one.

You can repeat these exercises as many times as you'd like.
