Deutsch als Fremdsprache im Klinikalltag meistern! Der berufliche Erfolg eines jeden Arztes basiert auf der gekonnten Kommunikation mit Patienten und Kollegen. Sei es im Anamnesegespräch, bei der körperlichen Untersuchung oder der Diskussion von Differentialdiagnosen. Internationale Ärzte stellt die Arbeit in deutschen Kliniken und Praxen vor eine besonders große Aufgabe, da sie sich sowohl in der fachspezifischen Ausdrucksweise als auch mit kulturellen Besonderheiten der Sprache zurechtfinden müssen.

Some of the students had previously been exposed to a limited amount of Spanish in elementary school. However, a pretest indicated that they recalled only a few of the words and grammatical structures used in the program. Physical Setting and Procedures T h e study took place in SDC's CLASS (Computer-Based Laboratory for Automated School Systems) facility (see last section in this chapter for a description of CLASS). Sessions with individual students took place in the small counseling room. T h e experimental comparisons, involving twenty students simultaneously, took place in the larger instructional areas.
3. To what extent can an automated audio-visual presentation device aid in teaching foreign language skills? It is inconceivable that the success achieved in the present experiment could have been achieved without some sort of audio-visual presentation, at least the kind of presentation that could be made by an ordinary tape recorder correlated with the visual presentation afforded by, let us say, a "programmed text". It is difficult to state, however, how much the rather complicated device employed in the present experiment enhanced its success by making learning more convenient and better controlled for the subjects.
This experiment disclosed that the massing or spacing of the trials made no appreciable difference in student performance. It appeared to indicate that the machine and the program were designed in a generally satisfactory manner, but that the "ground rules" under which the subjects were to perform their work were of critical importance. In Experiment I, subjects were required to repeat each loop in both the familiarization and the learning modes until they reduced their errors to 10% or less. T h e learners objected strenuously to this requirement, claiming that error rate was not a completely reliable index to degree of learning and pointing out that trying to meet a given error rate was both frustrating and distracting.
