The Dominican Republic, or República Dominicana, is a remarkably beautiful country.  Named Quisqueya (meaning “mother of all lands”) by the indigenous people, it shares an island with modern day Haiti to its west.

Its diverse population, controversial history, and rich culture give the Caribbean nation its own way of speaking Spanish. The distinct language of the Dominican Republic is due to its indigenous Indio, African, Spanish, and American influences.

The Spanish spoken in the Dominican Republic has its own accent, vocabulary, and colloquial expressions. Dominicans are also known for speaking fast and loudly.
