Physical binder with all the course material and slides.

American english, the presenters are easy to understand.
As there will be no interpretation into danish, we will provide a small photocopied dictionary with most of the special words used at the course.
A good advice for participants with English being the second language – and a bit rusty:
See some online english spoken webinars, listen to english podcasts or an audiobook (preferably clinical), online lectures, films (hide the subtitles) etc.  right up to the course – so your brain is toptuned for all the very important information given in the 4 days.
You can also read something in english – preferably something clinical.
