Spanish Language Immersion

Homestays/Spanish Immersion

The best way of learning languages

We have Dominican Republic homestays available in Puerto Plata  and the small villages around.  Our homestays give you the chance to  really learn Spanish.

  
  • We arrange homestays including breakfast and lunch.
  • Students of all ages and all levels can enjoy our Spanish language immersion with local families.
  • The families allow you to practice your new language skills by socializing with them.
  • Our homestays provide private rooms.
  • Fun and affordable while enjoying this unique and beautiful part of the country.
  • You will discover a new way of traveling and learning the local language.

To reserve a homestay, a $20 US deposit is required and it’s applicable to your lodging.

Students attending the classes usually prefer to stay with a selected host family, near to our partner Language School. This  is the most popular, economic and linguistically most effective form of accommodation, offered by our school. However,  other options are available:

or check in some these Hostels
Hostal Salome:  

  • Calle Salome Urena No. 56 | Zona Colonial, Santo Domingo, Dominican Republic (Zona Colonial)
  •   It’s a simple set up: bed, bathroom, TV, fridge, night stand, writing table all you need and more. The location is excellent right by “El Conde.” And a few other tourist sites like the home of Christopher Columbus. The service was among the best.

Boutique Hotel Palacio

  • Calle Duarte 106 | Colonial City, Santo Domingo 10211, Dominican Republic
  • 1 (809) 682-4730

Half block from Conde Street, the popular pedestrian mall, this nice hotel has a perfect location. It is walking distance to all those main attractions you will probably visit in Zona Colonial.  Check-in was quick & easy by a very friendly staff. My room was clean & comfortable, furnished with a double bed, a TV, a desk, a small closet with a safe, and a nice bathroom.   The breakfast  is superb: all you can wish for breakfast they got it! the staff, like everyone in the DR, were friendly & nice.
At night the front door is locked but there is doorman that will open it for you anytime during the night.
There is a supermarket on the same street so you can get anything you might need.  The Meson D’Bari, a very good restaurant that serves dominican food is a block away. Try the empanadas: I went there for more every night. It’s a little pricey but it’s worthy.
