ISV offers you a range of options and excursions before or after your ISV Program to give you an even more incredible experience overseas. Please refer to each specific option or excursion page for full details.
Spanish Language Program
Begin your ISV Program in the Dominican Republic by immersing yourself deep within the culture of your host country though a seven day homestay program with a local host family.
Since the vast majority of ISV participants travelling to your host country will participate in the ISV Spanish Language & Cultural Immersion Program (regardless of their Spanish language skills), ISV assumes your participation and will add the cost of this option to your Program invoice. Any ISV participant who chooses to opt out of the Spanish Language Program (for example, you already speak fluent Spanish) must notify the ISV USA office via the Flight/Options Form. For more details, see the Spanish Language and Cultural Immersion Program offered for Costa Rica or Dominican Republic participants.
