"This program is exactly what I have been looking for! I wanted a program to help teach me the useful "pharmacy Spanish" needed to help our customers but I didn't want to waste my time learning irrelevant information. I highly recommend it to anyone who would like to effectively counsel their Spanish speaking customers."

"I think the Spanish for Pharmacists program is fantastic. It allows many technicians to learn a unique skill that can be applied in many pharmacies. Whenever I train in a particular store in which I feel the program may be of use, I let the staff know about it. I especially like how the program is straight forward and reader friendly."
