Blizzard has improved their free trial of World of Warcraft. You can play as long as you want up to level 20 for free, no credit card required.
Impressed, I quickly got to thinking about how Sonlight could do something similar. After all, when Blizzard was offering only a 14-day trial, you could get the first three weeks of Sonlight's Instructor's Guides for free (a full week more than Blizzard). Now that they let you play for free, could I do the same?
Yes and no.
I can't physically push books over the network, which is a bummer. But then I realized that such an analogy is flawed.
Blizzard's content is the game files, just like Sonlight's content is in the Instructor's Guides. Blizzard's services involve connecting those files to their servers and keeping you up and running in their virtual world. Sonlight's services involve connecting those Guides to your books--which you can get from us at a fantastic price with an unmatched guarantee--and helping you keep up and running on your homeschool journey. Blizzard can't give you a computer or provide you with internet for the trial and they removed some key elements of game play until you pay to play. I can't give you books until you buy them.
However, Sonlight allows you to play with the first three weeks of your school year's instructional material for free for as long as you want, no credit card required.
Get your 3-week Sonlight sample, and take as long as you like looking it over to decide if you want to enjoy Sonlight for your school year. If you have any questions about a specific Sonlight program, please chat with a Sonlight Advisor or swing by the new Sonlight Forums.
