What is the language spoken in the Dominican Republic?


Spanish is officially accepted as the national language of the Dominican Republic. As with most Hispanic countries, the Dominican Republic has its own unique dialect of Spanish.

Usually Spanish and English are the most heard languages, but other languages are also used in specific regions, such as French and Japanese. In 1995, it was estimated that 7 million people in the Dominican Republic spoke Spanish. Many different regions within the country itself apply unique qualities to the language they speak. These types of differences, often referred to as "slang" by those unfamiliar with the unique qualities, can be used to identify exactly what part of the country someone may be from.
