As you’ve probably seen in prior notices, we (Eric and Linda Langner) closed our Language Immersion School several years ago. We’re retired and living in Paradise, living in our wonderful, traditional home in Veracruz, Mexico.

(The school name continues in Veracruz, but we are not associated with it.)

We have kept our school’s website online so that those looking at Linda’s books can see what our immersion school was like.

Linda has published 14 books. (And I, Eric, am as proud as can be of her.)

You can see Linda’s books here inside our site or on Linda’s Amazon Author Page or on LindaLangnerBooks.

Her books, in both Kindle and paperback formats, are available to everyone on

Speak Spanish With Your Patients
and Increase Your Cultural Competence

Continuing Education Provider (#15394) under the California Board of Registered Nursing

Have you Studied Spanish but You Still Can't Speak it?

Come to Mexico and Begin Speaking Spanish Immediately.

  • Our two-week intensive immersion program is designed to get you using the Spanish you know.

  • We take all that you've learned in traditional classes and start moving you forward from there.

  • Within days you'll be talking, and by the end of the course you'll be carrying on conversations in Spanish.

  • You'll be able to obtain a patient history and understand the patient's symptoms and concerns.

  • You'll be able to provide clear care instructions.

  • You'll be able to talk with a partient's caregivers about the patient's health and healthcare needs.

  • Your cultural competence in caring for Hispanic patients will be greatly enriched. You'll learn much more about Hispanic culture. You'll be out and about talking with locals and always be actively participating in the daily life.

  • The people of Veracruz love visiting with foreigners. They are warm and welcoming people who will open their hearts to you

This course is for nurses who have studied Spanish but still aren't able to speak it.

  • Many study Spanish in a standard classroom and gain a great deal of valuable knowledge about the language, but few truly begin to speak.

  • Our non-traditional instruction along with our small group size provides a safe and encouraging setting where students begin speaking almost immediately.

  • Class is conversation oriented and is activity driven. Conversation oriented gives you lots and lots of practice speaking and listening. The many different activities prepare you to talk in a variety of situations.

  • You'll practice with many different staff members. This better prepares you to understand many different patient voices.

  • You'll have six class hours (theory) and three hours of lab. If you wish to practice more, staff is available up to an additional five hours.

  • New concepts will be explained in English so they are fully understood and immediatly they will be used in Spanish.

  • You'll have many chances to role-play direct patient care situations and also caregiver situations.

  • After hours, away from school, as you're out around town, you'll be speaking Spanish--it's all great practice, and it's 100% authentic.

If it's been a while since you studied Spanish, a lot will have slipped your mind.

  • But that's no problem at all. We'll review all the grammar you need, and we'll help you brush up on vocabulary you've forgotten.

  • We'll add all the new grammar that's needed.

  • We'll increase your general vocabulary.

  • We'll add lots of medical terminology.

  • We'll work with you on colloquial constructions your patients are likely to use.

  • We'll keep all of it focused on getting you speaking Spanish--providing nursing care in Spanish.

  • And we'll help you understand how Hispanics view health and medical care.

  • Additionally we'll help you better understand interpersonal dynamics in Hispanic culture.

  • Also we'll help you more clearly see the culture in general.
