Spanish course in Sosua, Dominican Republic

Study on a Spanish course in Sosua, a beach paradise in the Caribbean and a great starting point for discovering the rural face, local culture in "el campo" and nature diversity of the Dominican Republic. Just a two-minute walk away from our Spanish school lie pristine golden sands, washed by warm, tempting waters. Enjoy the convenience of on-site accommodation at the school, as well as private tropical gardens. After your Spanish lessons, relax under the shade of a palm tree, or sample the superb watersports conditions for which Sosua is famous. Try snorkelling or scuba diving to witness the rich marine life off the coast, or experience the thrill or surfing, kitesurfing or windsurfing! Our school even offers various watersports classes to complement your Spanish course in the Dominican Republic.

Maggie from the USA, Sosua
I am so blessed to be in the Dominican Republic, to see all I have seen, and experience all I have experienced, in only a week. Every day I've spent here so far has taught me something valuable. I've learned things about myself, friendship, the beautiful culture and people here, history, and so much more. … I feel so happy and so lucky to be here today. I have two more weeks in the Dominican but I wish I could do this every day. Learning is something so valuable and I can't put a price on the time I've spent here. I know this will help me in my future endeavors and I could not ask for a more enriching experience. ¡Me encanta la República Dominicana!

The small town of Sosua lies in an area of incredible natural beauty, bounded by the sparkling Caribbean on one side and lush jungle on the other. The nearby National Park of El Choco is home to an incredible diversity of wildlife. You’ll find endless things to see and do as you learn Spanish in Sosua, but if you prefer to take it easy and unwind, you’ll love this truly idyllic setting.
