    Default Intensive English Classes in North Coast

    Does anyone know of a language school that has intensive English classes located in the north coast. I know there are some in Santo Domingo but not sure of those in the north. They are for my Dominican husband and when I ask him he only knows of "his boys that speak english" that teach private english classes which is what he is doing now. However there is no true structure and he is not learning fast enough.

    Default I know spanish

    He is moving to America and I am trying to get him as much English down there prior to the move so that it can be a tad more seamless for him.

    My husband attended the Renovation Institute in Puerto Plata.

    I believe the classes were 4-5 nights a week for 2 hours.

    I should add that I don't think it was very expensive either....I will have to ask him what he paid but I think around 500 or 700 pesos per month.

    Best of luck. Jusat make sure that whatever school he atytends that he has real grammar books instead of notes and that he frequently has homework. He needs to learn the structure of the language well and once he does that it will be much easier to learn to speak, with you of course.

    That is what I mean. His current class consist of him taking notes that he studies all the time but there is no real grammar books utilized. That is why I am asking.

    That would be great if you could ask him. I think that would be perfect. He lives in Sabanetta but could travel to Puerto Plata daily for the class.

    No problem..I will post the info tonight when he comes home from work.

    I will add that he had text books, tests and exams.......grammar & conversational english were taught together.

    They had word lists each week that they had to learn and then use them correctly in sentences. They had to get up in front of the class and do speeches using the words they learned. Sometimes it was prepared for them and they had to memorize it....other times they were given a topic and had to write/speak on their own.

    I have nothing to compare it to but it seems like a good program.
