  • I’ve been listening to your podcasts for years, and I just now see your photo and you look nothing like I imagined. I’m smiling back at you!

  • Hello Dr Molly. My name is Steve Araiza. I work as a Spanish/English medical interpreter here in Albuquerque, NM. I really love my job and some patients think I am the greatest interpreter in the world but I’m not. I try to be a good listener. I need to improve my Spanish. I started listening last night to your free lessons. But my plan is to buy and take your other courses. Thanks so much for making this available!

    • Thanks Steve! I appreciate your comment and I think you are right on. Being a good listener is an essential of a good interpreter.
