Hello. I’m Molly Martin, MD, the creator of the Medical Spanish Podcast and the Spanish Grammar Review podcast. I also practice medicine as a hospitalist in Minneapolis, Minnesota. I have collaborated with native Spanish speakers and teachers to create these interactive audio lessons as a fun way to challenge my Spanish-speaking skills and help others learn along with me.
My free podcasts get high reviews and are featured under language learning in iTunes and I have received very positive feedback from premium subscribers. Check out what people say about my Spanish audio lessons!
Collaboration with Native Speakers
To ensure the quality and accuracy of these lessons, I collaborate with native Spanish speakers:
- In the above picture, I am working with Javier Mendez, an instructor at San Pedro Spanish School in San Pedro, Guatemala.
- I teamed up with former online Spanish school, LanguageTailor.com in 2010 to work with two of their instructors: Patricia Bustamante de la Garza from Mexico City and Ángel Bahena originally from Cuernavaca, Mexico. Patricia has a degree in Foreign Language Instruction. Ángel got his BA in education and translation in French, Spanish and English. He completed his MA in Language Teaching at the University of Missouri-Columbia. Since Language Tailor closed its doors, Ángel now has his own website where he offers Spanish lessons over Skype. You can sign up for lessons at SpanishPRN.com.
- You will also hear Urso Ramirez, who is originally from Santo Domingo, Dominican Republic. I met Urso through my friend, Sarah Shelton, also featured in some of the lessons. Sarah, like me, is from Minnesota, and has traveled, lived and worked in Latin America.
- Finally, when I first started publishing these audio lessons through the Medical Spanish Podcast in 2007, I teamed up with my friend Maria Bjorklund, MS from Peru. She has her masters in Education and teaches High School Spanish.
