Travelling Classroom

Learning Spanish "on the road" while discovering the Dominican Republic

Learn a language in a different way. Apply your freshly acquired Spanish words immediately. See, experience, and feel something new and interesting every day, and have lots of fun – these are the goals of the Travelling Classroom.

The 2-week language round-trip takes you to the most attractive regions of the Dominican Republic. During your stay at four different course places you will not only learn Spanish but also discover the beautiful countryside and cultural diversity of this Caribbean island. You will get to know the Dominican people and their way of life in a much closer way than in a regular class at just one place.

Travelling Classroom is only available for closed groups (signing up as a group together). As an individual you may experience two of the four locations of this program by booking a split course between IIC Santo Domingo and IIC Sosua.

What better way to really discover this fascinating country and its friendly people? The Travelling Classroom turns your language holiday into an unforgettable adventure.

From coast to coast

The starting point is the small beach town of Sosua. The trip then moves to the mountains of Jarabacoa and to the country’s capital Santo Domingo. From there we go to the sparkling beaches of Las Terrenas on the peninsula of Samana. The trip ends in Sosua again.

Lessons take place in many different settings: on the terrace of a small beach hotel and in the garden pavilion of a lodge in the mountains, as well as in the classrooms of the school. Classes are usually in the mornings.

The accommodations vary in settings as well. They range from a modest inn in the mountains of Jarabacoa to a mid-range beach hotel in Sosua.

The excursions and activities within the program include for example horseback-riding, dance lessons, local excursions in the surrounding area, and a BBQ party. The entrance fees are included in the program price, as well.

Further leisure activities such as windsurfing or kite surfing, river rafting, scuba diving, and so on can be organized by the school on site and incur additional costs.

There are 2 course levels available: beginner/elementary and intermediate/advanced.

The group size is at a minimum of 6 and a maximum of 10 participants.
