Hello, Hola and Marhaba from Barts Language and Culture Society!
As uni students living in East London we are in a very multicultural area which brings along with it a diverse range of patients from different ethnicities, each armed with their unique languages and cultures!
Our student-led workshops can be a great opportunity to learn something new from basic questions and medical terms to different parts of the body. These can help improve patient care when a language barrier is present, helping improve patient rapport. If you wish, contact us and you can even teach your own workshop! All of course fuelled by culturally themed snacks! In the past year we have learnt Farsi, Greek, Chinese, Bengali and much more!
As well as this, you can get to know other students who are just as interested in various languages and cultures as you! Other fun events we aim to run include trips to Brick Lane, V&A and evenings out at different cultural restaurants!
