StudyTravel offers you the opportunity to learn Spanish in Santo Domingo, the Dominican Republic's capital city. Santo Domingo is the oldest inhabitated European Settlement in the Americas, with Spanish-influenced living dating back to 1492 after the arrival of Christopher Columbus. Music is a very important part of the culture in the Dominican Republican with "merengue" being the most popular. It is a very energetic and lively form of music that encapsulates the Latin way of life and will get you singing and dancing in no time at all!
