Pre-Intermediate Spanish Practice CourseA video lesson from the Pre-Intermediate Spanish Practice Course which practices the 69 topics of the Pre-Intermediate Spanish Theory Course.

This is the 7th Spanish lesson in the Pre-Intermediate Spanish Practice Course. This is an interactive Spanish video where you have the opportunity to practice Spanish at pre-intermediate level with a native Spanish speaker.

In this Spanish lesson we will conclude our series of interactive Spanish lessons related to speaking Spanish at the doctor’s or at hospital with a typical roleplay scenario. In previous lessons we have looked at the parts of the body and practiced the Spanish verbs Doler, Tener, and Estar in relation to describing how one feels and asking one’s doctor or nurse for advice. Now we will try to put some of what we have learned into practice with a roleplay in Spanish. I will do my best to try to recreate a possible scenario in a medical centre and ask you to speak with and understand people such as a receptionist, a doctor and other patients waiting to be seen.

Please try to watch the video first before looking at the lesson notes. Answers to all tasks involved in the lesson will be given at the end of the post. Try not to look at the answers until you have tried a good few times to give your own responses.

This lesson practices the information taught in Pre-Intermediate Spanish Lesson 7: Roleplay in Spanish at the doctor’s or hospital from my Pre-Intermediate Spanish Course.
