Hi Halimo,

I kind of know what you mean. English is not my 1st or 2nd language either. Right now i'm in a English medical program. During my first and second year of medical studies everything was all new to me but now i'm all use to it :P It's not as difficult as it seems though. Some you have to memorize and after a while you know them all by heart :P Many of the words are often repeated in different subjects and fields. What you can do is to buy a medical dictionary (if u don't have one already) and write down all the new words you don't know in small notebook.

Good luck :)

1- Try hard, you will be adapted to...
2- Let medical dictionary be your friend....

just as they said !!!
for me i usually try to find similar word or thing to remember it,
not only terminologies, even Lectures n all. Study hard &
good luck! :)

thanks for all your advice. I'm happy to say that I'm going to be graduated in two weeks time.
