The thing that saved us on our trip to Santo Domingo was Steph’s ability to speak Spanish well enough for basic but essential conversations with people we interacted with, especially at the hotel, in markets, and with the taxi driver.

So, Steph decided to learn Spanish so she could attend the professor’s course.
