Sol Education Abroad Reviews
Granada SOL Experience
Submitted by mariaboretti - Elizabethtown College | May 17, 2017
My experience with SOL Education in Granada Spain was incredible. If a student is looking for a program to study abroad through, SOL is a great option. The directors are so helpful, so accessible, and do everything they can to make sure you have a good experience. The program organization is very simple and easy to follow from the application process to the last day in Spain. I have never felt worried or like I did not have a strong support system from my program. The host families that SOL has are also amazing. My host mother was so kind and did so much for us- from what they are asked of in terms of housing, cleaning, and food to answering any random questions I had, giving me advice on where to go and what to see, and showing me parts of her life that added to my overall cultural experience. The classes that I was able to take were great learning experiences too and the opportunities abound for language exchanges created an amazing environment for learning Spanish.
The time that SOL basically saved my life haha

I honestly would not have had the same experience that I had if it had not been for SOL. I had a hard time getting to Granada and it was a day full of many tears and a lot of Anxiety, and that was for a normal person, but in my situation included no phone service, lost bags (even my carry on that was checked for free), and no money (because I thought my money had been in my carryon that was checked). Eduvirgen was the SOL director that came to my rescue and even met me outside my hostal at 9:30 at night just to make sure that I was okay. Then when I was very sick, German accompanied me to the medical center to make sure that everything went smoothly. He even lent me money for the medications that I had not enough cash on me at the moment for. Edu and German and Miguel made SOL and Granada a home away from home and I could not have asked for a better group to be with these last 5 months. If it had not been for Edu, I honestly might have turned around and went back home to the US and if it were not for German, I would probably still be dying of sickness because I would have been too worried about how to work the medical center. And if it had not been for the cultural activities that the program provides, I would not know as much about Spain or Granada specifically, that I do now because of them. I thought SOLmates was cheesy at first, but now I could not agree more.
No Pasa Nada, Me Encanta Granada

I loved Spain so much and that was all thanks to my amazing program directors, friends, host family, professors and all of the wonderful people I met while in Granada. I have learned a lot about Spanish while here, but more importantly, I have learned a lot about myself. I can't describe how much this has all meant to me, but I know I have changed for the better because of this experience.

Granada is the most beautiful city in all of Spain, and SOL is the perfect program! It is the perfect mix of traveling, fun, and super interesting classes with amazing teachers. This will be the best semester you will every have!

This program and city was truly an amazing experience. I got to study in a city that had so much night life but also so much Spanish culture. The directors were so amazing, they help you with everything and they are a grand time. You get to so the beauty of Spain and learn the language in an immersive way.
