Brief Course Description

This program will introduce Luther students to the most meaningful aspects of Dominican and Cuban cultures while combining intense study of the Spanish Language with artistic expressions, guided visits to cultural centers, NGOs plus ecological tourism. Students will attend classes at FLACSO-RD, live with Spanish speaking families in Santo Domingo, the capital of the Dominican Republic and travel around the country. After two weeks in the Dominican Republic, the course will finish in La Habana, Cuba, where participants will visit museums and historical sites, attend lectures and cultural functions.
