Food Restrictions?  No Problem! We can accommodate all requests.  Just give us as much notice as possible.


When students arrive to Sol Camps, their orientation schedule will include a period for testing. Students will be required to write an exam comprised of two parts: (1) Reading and Writing (2) Speaking and Listening.

Our academic team will take these scores and place students in their respective level.

Our online English test is a great resource where students can also assess their English skills to get an idea of their estimated level.

We also encourage students to take our “where to?” quiz to find out which Sol Camps is the best fit for them.

Please note that our “online English test” and our “Where to? Quiz” are suggested for reference only.
