Medical Language: Immerse Yourself is grounded in immersive language learning. Rather than memorize vocabulary, you'll experience the sights and sounds of health care as you listen, speak, write, examine and think. To reinforce learning, the text offers a greater quantity and variety of exercises than any other publication of its kind.

Hands-on practice offers practical exposure to real-world healthcare tasks. Chapter review exercises include analysis of real medical reports, as well as role-play activities prompting you to describe a patient's condition using medical language.

Organized by medical specialty, the 5th Edition has been regrouped into 15 chapters designed for a 16-week course. Each chapter now consists of 5 sections correlated with learning outcomes. Practice Laps at the end of each section gauge your comprehension by learning outcome.

When you choose a plan, you're signing up for a 4-month 'term'. You can opt to make a one-time payment for the initial 4-month term or pay monthly. If you opt for monthly payments, we will charge your payment method each month until your 4-month term has ended. You can turn on auto-renew in My account at any time to continue your subscription before your 4-month term has ended.

When you purchase a Pearson+ subscription, it will last 4 months. Before your initial 4-month term ends, you can extend your subscription by turning auto-renew on in My account.

If you turn auto-renew on, we’ll automatically renew your subscription and charge you every month until you turn off auto-renew. If you made a one-time payment for your initial 4-month term, you’ll now pay monthly.

To avoid the next payment charge, make sure you turn auto renewal off 1 day before the auto renewal date. You can subscribe again after auto-renew has been turned off by purchasing another Pearson+ subscription. We use your credit card to renew your subscription automatically. To make sure your learning is uninterrupted, please check your card details before your first monthly payment.

With a Multi Pearson+ subscription plan, you can download up to 10 titles on the Pearson+ app from My list on each of your authorized devices every month.

When you're using your Multi Pearson+ subscription plan in a browser, you can select and read from as many titles as you like.
