Introduction

The school, founded in 1994, is one of the most important schools for teaching Spanish as a foreign language in the Dominican Republic. The school has two centres; one in Santo Domingo, the capital, and another one in Sosúa, a well renowned city on the northern coast of Hispaniola. Moreover, the school offers English and German lessons to Dominicans facilitating an intercultural exchange with the students from abroad. Minimum age to enroll is 18. It is also possible to split the course between Santo Domingo and Sosúa enrolling for at least 3 weeks.

Studying Spanish with this school will allow you to discover the beautiful natural places of the island through several excursions organized by the school such as: visit to Puerto Plata and to a local firm producing cigars; excursion to Jarabacoa in the so called “Dominican Alps”; visit to Cabarete, famous place for windsurfing fans; weekend to the Samaná peninsula, renowned for the marvellous Las Terrenas beaches, for El Limón waterfalls and for Cayo Levantado atoll; visit to the Gri-Gri lagoon and to the “Zona Colonial” in Santo Domingo.
