Quick Summary: A project that provided short courses in different languages for medical communication. It also assisted students in finding opportunities to learn highly competitive subjects such as medicine by studying in international training centres where English is not considered the working language.

Communication was once considered a defining quality that set humans apart from others in the animal kingdom. Though that theory is no longer held valid, effective communication remains one of the most powerful tools to facilitate a good quality of life. With the increasing globalisation, the ability to communicate in diverse languages has become ever more useful. An inspired pair of medical students has explored this theory through a hugely successful programme of short courses in French for medical communication. 

 

They are now seeking to expand this effort to include finding opportunities for deserving students to learn highly competitive subjects such as medicine by studying in international training centres where English is not considered the working language. MegaReach is assisting in this commendable effort by helping identify locations and stipulations of such centres of training. We shall circulate details of such courses and their stipulations shortly.

A medical student at Plymouth Uni originally from Derry, Ireland, I began Plymouth Languages to show the world the importance of linguistics + how to use our extraordinary brain power to learn new languages! Understanding Neuroscience, like linguistics, is at the forefront of our evolutionary capacities + I want to push these boundaries. Language is a universal, cross cultural concept for all humans.
