Jump into the rhythm of The Dominican Republic’slively capital, a bustling city with the laid-back charm of an oceanside resort. “La Capital” will serve as a vibrant setting for your daily Spanish instruction, along with an optional college-level course and your choice of cooking, music, dance, or jewelry-making classes. After class, hit Santo Domingo’s famous beaches, people-watch and snack on empanadas or fried plantains at one of the many outdoor restaurants along Plaza de España.
At home with your Dominican host family, dine on rice and beans and other native cuisine while gaining valuable real-world practice in conversational Spanish.
