Spanish School in Sosua
Our Spanish school in Sosua is located in the eastern section of the city, in a neighborhood known as "El Batey". Both the city center and Sosua's principal beach are a short walk away from the school grounds, which are surrounded by tropical trees that shade the 4 outside terraces where classes can be held. Dominican students studying German or English and international students studying Spanish amicably socialize, relax and practice their new languages in the outdoor garden, equipped with comfortable lounge chairs and a ping pong table. Indoor classrooms are simple yet cozy. The school is equipped with computers with free internet access, and Wi-Fi for students who bring their own laptops.
Classes are held from Monday to Friday, mornings or afternoons. Each class (1 lesson) lasts 45 minutes.

All of the teachers at our partner school in Sosua are highly qualified native speakers with wide experience in the field of teaching Spanish as a foreign language.
They are expected not only to demonstrate a high standard of teaching, but to reach out to the students in order to motivate them. After class they are often competent advisers on everyday questions about life on the island, as well.
