SOL Education (university programs) and SOL Abroad (High School programs) are extremely affordable, nearly all-inclusive, high quality, and full-immersion. I was drawn to SOL at first because of the limited number of locations – Spain, Mexico, Costa Rica, and Argentina; their focus is quality, not quantity, unlike most programs.
SOL promises and delivers 24/7 help and service in both the US and abroad. Their on-site directors are natives and know exactly what they are doing as teachers, facilitators, friends, and mentors. I never once felt like I was being misguided, was uncertain, or confused. SOL was extremely thorough in their advertising, application process, and pre-departure counselling.
On money matters, SOL allowed me to fundraise, set up payment plans, work with scholarship foundations, and they helped me navigate affording my university program, as well as each of my students' individual financial needs. Their nearly all-inclusive price attracted parents and provided a level of security for them – what parent wants to send their kid to another country with a ton of cash?
