LL Medical English - English for Medical and Scientific Professionals

About us

LL Medical English was created especially for internationally trained professionals in the medical field. Our clients are residents, doctors, nurses, pharmacists, dentists, veterinarians, and other medical professionals working in various specialties.

Whether you want to present at an professional congress, work in an international clinical trial, or pass the OET exam to work abroad, we will work with you to improve your grammar, listening, reading, writing and speaking skills – whatever you need to reach your goal. 

We do things differently and, in fact, we do not even have a physical classroom or a set weekly class schedule. We use the latest online technologies and medical-English resources to make the classes more interactive and relevant. Everything we offer is tailor-made for each individual, group or organization. We arrange your classes to fit into your schedule. We also work with your group or organization to create classes, intensives or workshops based on your requirements.

What makes us different is that we bring our own knowledge and experience in the health sciences and professional medical writing to each and every class, course or writing review. You’ll notice this difference in the topics, activities, resources, examples and types of skills we practice, preparing you to go further in your career.

 As a Premium Preparation Partner, we are endorsed by OET to provide preparation and language courses for specific professions. We have demonstrated high levels of quality in material creation and curriculum planning. We offer high quality teaching that really delivers success for OET candidates.

Her clients have presented in English at international conferences and events in Greece, the United Arab Emirates, Belgium, Spain, USA and Canada, to name a few, and have actively participated in English at international medical or scientific meetings in many countries. Her clients have also successfully passed the OET exam and are now working abroad in various health professions around the world. 

Classes with Lisa are fun, superorganized and goal oriented with every class focusing on a specific skill or learning objective. Her style is very interactive and full of digital tools and resources. Classes can include starting with small talk, reviewing homework, teaching grammar & vocabulary, sharing exam strategies, and providing regular feedback and advice about working and living abroad. 

As the owner and founder of LL Medical English, she is passionate about being an entrepreneur and creating content and resources for LL Medical English’s blog, newsletter, classes, and social media.

Lisa is an awesome teacher and a great person. I've been studying for the OET exam in medicine for two months, twice a week. I was really frustrated with the exam, but Lisa not only motivates me, she is an incredible teacher and explains very clearly and simply all of your doubts. She also made a great effort to give me classes at night because of the time difference; it was the only time that we could plan, and I appreciate that. I really like how she organizes the classes; she shares all the material you need to work on your weak points, and after every class, she writes a follow-up for the next one. I really enjoy studying with her, and successfully, I got good marks on my English exam. She is not only a good professional but also a kind and sweet person! Thank you so much for your help; you brought me closer to my dream.!!!

I passed the OET exam after studying for 6 months, achieving a pleasing pass grade. This would not have been possible without the professional help of Lisa, my on-line tutor. Lisa is an excellent teacher, who always did everything in her power to help me, showing patience and kindness throughout the lessons. This resulted in my learning so much from the course. I would personally recommend Lisa’s courses to anyone wishing to prepare for the OET exam.

I found Lisa exploring my LinkedIn page with a before and after post about why after so long she stopped teaching IELTS and dedicated herself to teaching OET. After 3 failed IELTS attempts I did not hesitate for a moment to confirm that lisa would be a great help in my preparation for this new exam. We were able to work together to achieve the goal and today we can celebrate together! Thank You Lisa.

Excelente profesional. Preparación dirigida a reforzar los puntos débiles del alumno, lo que permite un uso eficiente del tiempo tanto en clase como individual. Horario (duración, frecuencia y número de clases) adaptado a las posibilidades del alumno. Trato excepcional. Conseguí mi objetivo (preparación del OET exam para medicina) gracias a la ayuda de Lisa y la recomendaría sin dudarlo.

I found this Teacher because OET exam centre from Madrid recommended her to me and it was a grateful experience. We worked together for 1 month, she gave me a lot of vocabulary, exams, feed back from my letters and exam results to make me understand the OET exam and how it works. With her guide and an intensive studying effort, if you are focus on it, you will get it and get your pourpose.

Lisa is the best teacher I could ever had. She taught me plenty of tips to learn how to do the exams correctly and how to improve my score. She is very nice and kind and it was a pleasure to learn with her. I succeeded at my OET exam and I know I couldn't have done it without her help.
