Studying abroad with Sol in Oaxaca was such an amazing experience! It is a full immersion program so even over the course of 4 weeks my Spanish-speaking abilities developed immensely. All of the excursions were so fun, unique, and informative. The directors were so sweet and available all the time. They truly wanted to know who we were, not just make sure we did what we were supposed to. I had a better experience with the teachers at UABJO than I even had at my home university! If you are looking for a unique and awesome study abroad experience I highly recommend going to Oaxaca, Mexico with Sol Education!

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.

This is honestly the best program out there for studying abroad. I recommend Oaxaca, Mexico because of several reasons: Mexico is the United states neighbor (there fore it is very relevant to study abroad there and get to know the culture, regardless of what the current president thinks).Sol education is cheap(er) than other programs. You the best bang for your buck; including housing, excursions, food and classes. The program is very easy to work with and offers you actual Spanish classes that will transfer over to your college without a problem. Mexico is beautiful, enormous and very historical and the education you will get is very prestigious. Do not let the fear that is portrayed in the news sway you from choosing this program.

Amazing program! definitely recommend

SOL education gave me more than I expected. I enjoyed every minute of this trip, I didn't want it to end. I learned so much about the Spanish culture in three weeks! I love everything the program planned and I currently miss my host mom. I loved their food and home environment. It is worth every penny!

This is a great program if you want to learn Spanish quickly. There are many locals who love to help you practice and classrooms are more about learning than a grade, which relieves pressure and you're able to take everything in.

So many things to do, see, and learn. Amazing location, amazing food, amazing culture. Especially great for the closed minded and conservatives, you'll get to know so many beautiful things about Mexico, people, and the World here!

Directors are awesome. Would definitely do this program again and come back on my own as well!

I had a wonderful experience on this trip. I learned so much about the Spanish culture, custom, food, and history. The host family was the most challenging, but most rewarding, learning experience. :)
