Il rapporto con la famiglia ospitante è stato fantastico, disponibili e premurosi con una cucina fantastica , i pasti erano meglio che al ristorante. Il personale è stato molto disponibile ed ha sempre cercato di coinvolgere i vari studenti, Per me è stata un esperienza fantastica, grazie per la cortesia e la precisione nell'organizzazione .

Die Studierenden kommen aus der ganzen Welt. Es ist ein herrlicher interkultureller Austausch, bei dem man interessante Menschen jeden Alters kennenlernt. Die maestros sind sehr freundlich und offen. Man fühlt sich von Beginn an zu Hause und in guten Händen. Ich freue mich bereits auf meinen nöchsten Aufenthalt in Santo Domingo an der Sprachschule.

IIC, Santo Domingo
Duration: 5 weeks

I'm currently in Santo Domingo and the weather is beautiful, as you may imagine. Everyday, the sun shines, not like at home. I like it a lot here, the school is small and even has a family atmosphere to it. The staff is very dedicated, the women at the reception desk give us updates on the local cultural events and tell us about Merengue and Salsa – which are very important in the life of Santa Domingo residents. During breaks, we receive coffee & biscuits or giant exotic fruit baskets. My host family is also very friendly, the food is excellent and I have nothing to complain about. Everything is for the best. I would like to thank the helpful Munich team for organising my stay perfectly.

Host family
Staying with a family in Santo Domingo is without doubt the best way to learn Spanish and to immerse yourself in the Dominican culture. All of the host families are chosen with care, the objective being that you can practise your Spanish in total confidence every day. Living around 15-30 minutes away from the language school building, you will stay in a single room with breakfast or half board provided.

Shared apartment
You also have the possibility of staying around 5 minutes' walking distance away from the school, sharing with other students. The apartment has three bedrooms, two shared bathrooms and a balcony. A WiFi connection is also available in the apartment and you will be able to use the fully-equipped kitchen in order to prepare your meals or to try out new typical recipes with your new friends.

Using your Spanish in a social or cultural context is a very good way to develop on the skills that you will acquire in class. This is why our partner school proposes activities and outings to students, some free or at reduced prices, both during the week and at weekends. These include: dance classes, tours of the city and its museums, nights at the movies, BBQs at the school or in Santo Domingo's bars, and excursions to the beaches of BocaChica, Las Terrenas or the magnificent Jarabacaoa waterfalls.
