Language Courses

Cabarete Language Institute certified language teachers are experts in customizing courses for everyone, and use a variety of innovative instructional techniques to meet each student’s needs.

We cater to a diverse set of students. We have taught many children as little as age 5. We have done many intensive English programs for Dominicans and other foreigners getting ready to move to the US or another English speaking country. Kiteboarders and surfers looking for something extra to do on their vacation love CLI’s ability to work with them to create a schedule that makes sense to them.
