Today, learning takes place in multi-faceted environments. The learner can interact through a social network or explore content using a learning management system. A common assumption is that most learners speak and obtain information using the English language, however, Spanish is the nation's second most common language and the third most common language in the world. In the medical profession, Spanish is an essential language which can be successfully integrated not only into the curriculum but also into a learning environment such as ANGEL. This presentation will include a discussion and demonstration of how the Advanced Medical Spanish Course (taught in ANGEL) integrates the use of Spanish within the medical curriculum.
