Default Standard English Proficiency

Standard English proficiency is critical for all international medical graduates working in the U.S. Subtle mispronunciations may have critical consequences and lack of familiarity with the speech patterns typical of American English pronunciation may result in missed opportunities and a less astute diagnosis.

Let’s look at a few common pronunciation errors:

“He is bleeding” vs. “He is breathing.”
Articulating key consonants is critical for clarity.

“Take 50 mgs twice daily” vs. “Take 15 mgs twice daily.”
Word stress, the difference of emphasis between “FIF tee” and “fif TEEN” is essential.

If pronunciation is speech output, then what about speech input. How is your ability to understand the nuances of spoken English or even to comprehend the rhythm of phrases as they are typically spoken?

“I think I feel better” vs. “I think I feel better.”
Intonation and emphasis is the difference between:
“I think I feel better” (although my husband doesn’t agree.)
“I think I feel better.” (I’m not so sure though.)

“DI joo GEH’ my TES bak?” actually is “Did you get my tests back?”
Yes, American English speakers do link words (did you … d+y=j!), pronounce certain “t-sounds” as a glottal stop (the stop sound in uh-oh), and omit consonants (S+T+S=SS.)

In the CS2 Preparation Training, you will work one-to-one with a professional pronunciation training coach to gain awareness and acquire techniques that result in clear speech. You will also improve your listening skills to better understand what your patients are communicating.
