      Intensive 20 with Shared Apartment
      School Staff

      I loved this course!! Mr Victoriano is a great teacher. I plan to return later this year

      Very clean and basic. I suggested that a few minor things be replaced, like a pot and a knife. I did not need anything more. The night watchman Theo? Was super friendly and helpful.

      I had a great time. Due to the weather we did not do a lot of activities. Everyone was helpful and friendly.

      Intensive 20 + Dance lessons with Studio Apartment
      School Staff

      Both the language course and the dance course have exceeded my expectations. I have found an environment full of friends. The activities after classes were very interesting and they got me very involved. I particularly appreciated Sabrina's work, who was in charge of taking care of the students.

      Both the shared apartment where I stayed for some days and the studio were excellent. The environment of the school was very nice and well maintained, immersed in a park/garden. Also the environment of the dance school was better than I expected.

      All the teaching staff both at the language school and at the dance school did their best to make me feel a welcome guest. I would like to repeat this experience next November.

      Intensive 20 + Windsurfing with Studio Apartment
      School Staff

      Splendid Spanish course with an excellent teacher - Rosa. It was really nice to stay at the school. Simple but okay breakfast. Big rooms. You had every opportunity to talk to other students whenever you felt like it in the big garden surrounding the school.

      School Staff

      The teacher was extremely knowlegable and very pleasant to work with. It was a great wxperience and I would highly recommend Robert to anyone else.

      School Staff

      I really felt that I made progress after two weeks on the course and my only regret was that I couldn't stay longer. The course structure was grammatically based which I wanted (intermediate) combined with lots of opportunities to practise speaking using the grammar which had been taught. I stayed in a single bedroom/own bathroom accomodation on site. The room was cleaned every day and the bathroom was well equipped. A fridge kept drinks cool and there was a ceiling and bathroom fan. The room looked out onto beautiful gardens with mango, avocado and palm trees. The excursions which were planned by the school were fun and interesting. (horse-riding on the beach, visit to the city of Puerto Plata, visit to a lake with zip wire) to name but a few. The staff at the Languages school were very friendly and welcoming.

      School Staff

      My teacher was excellent and the school staff were friendly and helpful! I feel I was placed in an appropriate class for my level and the total immersion style of teaching forced me to use my Spanish. had a single studio with private bath. The room was a good size and it was nice to have a refrigerator. The furniture could use updating, specifically the bed and linens but overall the accommodation was clean, the area was safe and close to the beach. The grounds are beautiful with lush gardens and fruit trees.The student coordinator and other staff were amaaaaaaazing! They do a really great job creating a feeling of community for all students. They also did a great job giving students the opportunity to experience the culture of Dominican Republic and see the area.

      Super Intensive 30 with Studio Apartment
      School Staff

      Fantastic experience, the school was extremely accommodating. In eight weeks I learned a lot and am so glad I was able to have this experience! The room in the apartment was clean and large, it was a great way to experience the city in a safe environment.

      School Staff

      I enjoyed my course. Our teacher made us comfortable with speaking the language, which we did a lot. I didn't think I had the aptitude but she showed me that anything was possible. I improved a lot in just two weeks. The onsite accommodations were good. Not luxurious, but adequate for what we need. Comfortable with wireless Internet and a fridge.

      School Staff

      Our tutor was excellent and explained everything very well. He also gave us plenty of chance to try our Spanish by repeating phrases. I would like to have stayed for another two weeks if I could.

      School Staff

      Very good teachers and very good staff: they all try to help you to have the best and they change the plans if you need something different. I lived for two months in a room at the school: very comfortable, very beautiful place, no problems and the staff make you feel very welsome in your accomodation.

      School Staff

      The staff was extremely helpful in accommodating my need for morning classes and even arranged private lessons as well as group lessons.

      School Staff

      The classes were really interesting and the time passed quickly. I wished I had been able to stay longer. The teachers rapidly assessed the students' needs and I certainly felt I had far more confidence in speaking he language.
