dc.description.abstract This study is designed to teach Saudi females how to communicate with English speaking medical staff in better English. In this study I have designed a course of seven lessons. All of the terminology and information of theses lessons have been chosen to represent the subjects of women interest, such as female genital and pregnancy process. The first and second lesson is about some of the human body organs. Lesson three is about using the medical names of doctors such as pediatrician instead of children's doctor. The fourth lesson teaches students how to make an appointment. Lesson five is about the English names for the most common diseases in Saudi Arabia, while lesson six is about the different forms of medicine. Finally, lesson seven is a revision for the whole course. The main aim of this course is to teach women how to be independent inside hospitals and other medical institutions. Also, it aims to increase their abilities to speak English in the purpose of discussing their health issues.
