"These SOL people know what they're doing! This a wonderful and economical program that takes the hard logistics of planning and extensive trip and handles everything so that the student can enjoy the immersion and have a proactive learning environment. Raul and Beatriz, [the onsite directors], love showing their country to students and do so in a fun, professional, and engaging manner. Both were very good to me and went above and beyond to make sure every student had what he or she needed. I appreciate how accommodating and patient both SOL employees and others I encountered through activities and excursions were with those of us still in the learning stages of Spanish. Many thanks to everyone involved that makes SOL such a stellar program. I am very grateful for the experience I had thanks to SOL and I look forward to working with the program again in the future. "
