The Traveling Classroom program is 2 weeks in duration (20 hours per week) and takes students through many of the enchanting and diverse regions of the Dominican Republic. All levels are welcome, however, students will be separated into only two groups. The first group will consist of Beginner and Post Beginner, while the second group consists of the Intermediate to Advanced students.
The journey begins in the beach town of Sosua where students will gather and prepare for the trip. It then moves to the mountains of Jarabacoa and continues on to the capital city of Santo Domingo. From there, students travel to the beaches of Las Terrenas on the peninsula of Semana, and the trip ends back in Sosua. All transportation is provided in the school's own mini-bus.
The Group Spanish study of four hours daily, Monday through Friday, are held in different settings, from the school's own classrooms in both Sosua and Santo Domingo to the terrace of a small beach hotel in Las Terrenas.
Accommodation for 13 nights, Sunday through Saturday morning, is provided in either a pension or hotel (depending on the location) and a shared room with breakfast daily is included in the cost. Single rooms are available on request and at additional cost.
Leisure activities abound during the trip and are available at additional cost. These include:
• Horseback Riding:
Approx. $15-20 U.S./2 hours
Approx. $35 U.S./4 hours
• River Rafting:
Approx. $45-55 U.S/trip
Approx. $40-50 U.S/dive trip
Approx. $35 U.S/4 hours
Approx. $10-15 U.S/hour
Please Note: This program is not guaranteed. A minimum of 4 students of either group (Beginner and Post Beginner AND/OR Intermediate and Advanced) are required for the program to take place. There is a maximum of 16 students total.
Because the "Travelling Classroom" course starts in Sosua, it is very important that the students arrive at the airport in Puerto Plata.
