Cabarete Language Institute (CLI) Hosts First Open Spanish Class for Everyone in Dominican Republic

On Thursday March 12, 2015 CLI created and gave a Spanish Course to all of Cabarete at the Cabarete Social Club. Participants were greeted with a smile and a name tag which was later used to win prizes at the end of the class.

The event was introduced and presented by Isaac Trujillo, CLI Director, along with Violeta Castro, lead teacher at CLI.

The class was designed so it would fit any level of Spanish proficiency giving anyone from beginner to advanced a means to participate in a fun and interactive class.

The subjects taken into consideration ranged from why anyone should learn Spanish and most importantly why people spending time in Cabarete should learn Spanish.

One interesting component was Spanish: What you know and didn’t know you knew which showed how to figure out which English words had Latin roots and could be quickly turned into a Spanish word.

That was followed up a few games where strangers were paired off and quickly learned to talk about where they are from and what they like to do.

The last activity of the night was the raffle. Third and Second prizes were 3 hours of one to one Spanish Instruction and the First prize was a 15-hour course of one to one Spanish Instruction.

The lovely young and talented CLI teacher Hasnae selected the lucky winners.

First Prize went to Franklin from Colorado and, second prize to Alex from Russia and Third prize to Natalia from Russia.
