Study Spanish in the Dominican Republic
The Dominican Republic is a gorgeous Caribbean nation characterized by pristine beaches and friendly faces. Known as much for its colonial architecture as for its world-class baseball players, the country makes up two-thirds of the island of Hispañola and is located about 600 miles southeast of Florida. A natural gateway to the Americas between the Panama Canal and Central and South America, Columbus first arrived here in 1492.
Learn Spanish in the Dominican Republic and enjoy a variety of nature-oriented activities due to the country's diverse landscapes. Hike the mountains, trek through lush jungles and semi-arid deserts, or simply bask in the warm Caribbean sun on white beaches. While the country is a popular tourist destination, much terrain remains unblemished and largely undiscovered.
Whether you're exploring the island’s natural beauties or dancing to meringue rhythms with locals, the Dominican Republic offers a vast array of possibilities for the Spanish immersion student.
