    language, classes, and living at UNIBE

    Advertisements



    hi, my name is Sendie, i wanted to know if anyone could answer the following questions for me please.

    1- what language do they speak in class, the basic sciences classes? English or Spanish
    or in other words, how much Spanish do i need for the first years?

    2- how much is the living cost there? (apartment, food, car, etc...) what's the cheapest and the most expensive...

    3- how many days of the week do they have classes? is Saturday a regular class day? is it possible to negotiate that day?

    1) The language spoken in class is English. One or two of your classmates may speak Spanish on the offbeats(Puerto Ricans/Dominicans)..

    2) If you live near, apartment costs will go up. Here is an example: Apartment --> 500 Groceries --> ~1000 (weekly/biweekly) gas --> ~2000 (Biweekly) Spending money --> Uptoyou.

    This is all in Dominican Pesos, without a roommate, "middle of the road living", without a maid/cook/alcohol/goingout taken into consideration(if you're into that).

    3) It depends on your semester. I'd say it is less than likely to have a class on Saturday; if you do, it would be a class, let's say: from 9-12.

    1- They will speak broke ENGLISH the first two years and Ebonics SPANISH the last 2 years for hospitals AND lecture. Do not let them trick you into thinking the Spanish portion of the last two years only applies to hanging out at hospitals.
    2- It is more expensive that you would think and living expenses is the least of your worries. You need to worry about quality of life because living in the Dominican Republic is terrible. It is going to be a loooong 5 years.
    3- You will have class as many days of the week as they feel like giving you, it does not matter if the schedule does not make sense and is wasteful of your time, if it is inhumane, you are at their mercy. In fact it does not matter how many days
    or hours students are doing right now because they make changes to the pensum to torture students every semester and they will kindly point to the contract you signed where it says at the bottom in really really small fine print that they can
    do whatever they want and pretty much own you.
