Our Students

Where our students come from

Our student body is quite diverse in age, gender, background, and nationality. Students are coming from all over the world: from the US, Canada, Germany, Switzerland, Scandinavia, France, Italy, the Netherlands, Austria, Turkey, Russia, Dubai, India, Thailand, Japan over to China and Australia – every day we meet amazing people from around the world who inspire us and who get inspired by their stay in the Dominican Republic.

Students from German and English native speaking countries make up the majority, followed by participants from Western and Eastern Europe and Scandinavia.

Most of our students are between 22 and 42 years of age; however, students of all ages, ranging from 16 to 94, have learned Spanish with us. Their backgrounds vary from university students, travelers, and businessmen to government officials, employees, and the self-employed. Their common interest is to improve their language skills and to discover the Dominican way of life in the Caribbean.

Coming to IIC was similar to going to see your family for a holiday. It only took an hour or so for me to have been embraced into this very loving family. It made learning Spanish fun.
