I participated in a five week program in Granada, Spain. The program was well organized and the directors were extremely helpful. They were ready to answer any questions and concerns at all hour of the day. The transition into this new culture and place was very easy because they provided me with the tools and information to help me succeed. The university was in the center of the city and was full of helpful and intelligent professors. I loved that my program was full of activities and excursions every single day. They weren't required, but I didn't miss a single activity because they were always fun and exciting. I also have to give them an A+ on helping me immerse into a new culture and learn a lot about the rich history of Granada.

I really enjoyed my time in Costa Rica with Sol. I tried a bunch of new things (foods and activities, such as white water rafting), I spent some awesome time in nature (La Fortuna!), I met some really cool people, I lived with a kind host family, and I improved my Spanish. I really appreciated that the first several weekends had arranged travel, but then the weekends after that were open for us to travel as we pleased. This arrangement worked well because it gave us time to get acclimated to our surroundings before sending us off on our own. By the end of my time in Costa Rica, I felt that I had grown a lot in independence and courage. I was more willing explore new places on my own, and this is a skill that will serve me well in the rest of my life.

Sol Education Abroad was the most incredible study abroad experience I could have ever imagined. The courses I took and the cultural activities included allowed me to build relationships with numerous fellow students. The culmination of these relationships was during the last weekend of the first month where I took a trip with about twenty students from my program to see the strait of Gibraltar while making stops at coastal beach towns. My favorite part of the program was the experiences I had with my host family. My host mom always made the best meals, and some of my favorite week nights were spent watching the European soccer tournament with my host father and brother. We cheered Spain on in victory and defeat, and on a couple occasions I got the opportunity to play soccer with my host brother and his friends. This trip was originally intended for me to complete the courses I needed for school, but by the end of the summer I had gained so much more than that!

My experience in Costa Rica for 3 weeks this winter break with SOL Education Abroad was amazing. I would never trade the experience for anything. I learned so much Spanish in 3 weeks, I wish I could've stayed a full semester! I would imagine that students who do are close to fluent. We went white water rafting, zip-lining, and to the beach. We took a Costa Rican cooking class, a dance class, went to the wildlife rescue center closeby, and had free time to spare! I learned so much Spanish from taking classes 8-12 every day, and even more from long talks with my Mama Tica in Spanish after dinner each night. We brought in the New Year with our host family, and they were so welcoming that I didn't feel far from home at all. In fact, I adapted really well to the culture in Costa Rica, so much that I was barely homesick the whole time I was there. Everyone is so friendly. Like I said, I wish I could've stayed a full semester. I can't wait to go back! I have nothing but praise for SOL Education Abroad's program in Costa Rica.

I had never been out of the country before going to Oaxaca, Mexico this winter. I can easily say now that it was the best adventure of my life. The food was great, the culture was different and exciting, the city was beautiful, and the classwork was actually interesting. I made some fantastic friends and I can't wait for my next adventure with Sol!
