When Stakes are High: English for Healthcare Professionals

Imagine you’re an emergency room nurse, managing multiple life-threatening injuries in a hectic environment, rushing alongside dozens of other medical professionals to get a patient in critical condition the treatment he needs to survive.

Now imagine having to do all that in a language you’re not comfortable speaking.

When you need to learn English for work, you need training that goes beyond general terminology and basic conversation skills—you need to learn the language that you actually use in your career. And when doing your job can mean the difference between life and death, it’s even more important to learn the language that’s specific to your needs.

That’s where Voxy can help. We’ve created career-aligned courses designed to provide professionals with the targeted English practice they need to excel in their current industry or to pursue new career opportunities.
