    Hi there! I am a nurse. Thank you for the english conversation. Since now I am based in Thailand, I work as a teacher the nursing students.This sample conversation is really helpful.

    Please feature some more sample conversation especially when nurses converse with patients in the hospital (
    OR, ER, OB, etc.).

    Thank you so much and more power!

  11. duecorda says:

    I’m a new student on here.

    I love this site.

    Anyway I listened to conversation; nurse story #1. I’m interested in its story and learning method you’ve got.

    I laughed when he did change color of her cloth from pink to white. Why? Do Pink has some different mooooood? hehe.

    As I stated, I’m touched by this method. I can imagine whole scenes what you guys described by conversation. I think this is very helpful to learn English as English. I mean I don’t need to translate.

    Thanks.
