Sol Education Abroad Reviews
Sol is incredible.
Submitted by Vanessa Aho - Minnesota State University Moorhead | May 17, 2018
Sol is amazing. I was able to learn so much Spanish, and gain so many life long friendships. My host family was amazing, and I really felt at home with them. Classes were Monday-Friday from 8-11. Every couple of weeks, we went on an excursion to different places all around Costa Rica. Some incursions were zip lining, going to the beach, going to the rain forest, and white water rafting. Our directors of our program were amazing, and very helpful. There isn't a better place to spend the semester.
A native abroad
Submitted by Hunter Goan - Eckerd College | February 18, 2018
Living and Studying in Oaxaca, Mexico was a great way for me to connect with another culture while simultaneously reconnecting with my own. Not only did I perfect my Spanish, I also had the opportunity to learn Zapoteco and study the history of indigenous peoples throughout Mexico and the Southwestern United States. As a person of half Navajo descent, I saw many similarities between Oaxacan culture and my own. Even the indigenous languages like Zapoteco, Mixteco, and Nahuatl all seemed to have a connection to my mother's first language. My host family helped me a lot throughout my stay, and I have already re-visited them, and plan on visiting again soon.
SOL Education Abroad- Hereida, Costa Rica
Submitted by rngriesemer - Missouri State University | February 17, 2018
I thoroughly enjoyed my semester abroad in Costa Rica with SOL. We had cultural activities every week, along with included program excursions about every three weeks. Our directors always pushed us to speak Spanish around each other if we wanted to become fluent by the end of the semester. Living with my host family was one of my favorite parts about being abroad. Having a place to call home with a host mom who genuinely cared about my well-being was so comforting, and not to mention, the home-cooked meals were amazing! I became so independent and confident in just one semester- if you are thinking about studying abroad, stop thinking and just do it!!

I had a wonderful experience with the Sol Program. I learned much more than I expected and made many new friends. I can't really think of anything that was negative about my time in abroad and everyone in the program was more than helpful.

I had a great time during my semester abroad, the classes were challenging but manageable so I had plenty of time to immerse myself in the culture. I would recommend this program to anyone, it's a must.
