ASL Summer Institutes and Summer Immersions in 2016

American Sign Language Institutes are training sessions that are the equivalent to two levels of our standard class curriculum. Students taking one or more Institutes can accelerate their progress toward fluency.  See the descriptions below.

The Institutes can take place at one of our sites or at your facility. They are available nationally. Outside a fifty mile radius of Providence, RI, there are travel fees and possibly accommodation fees. At your site, we can offer the level 1 or 2 Institute.

Summer Institutes have brought students together from all over the country.  We have had students from California, Colorado, Wisconsin, NJ, NY, ME, MA, NH, VT, CT, RI, FL and PA.  These intensive trainings build your knowledge, skill and confidence quickly. 

For those who are traveling here, we can provide transportation – pick up at the train station, bus station or airport, and car pooling while here.

You can register online or we can send you a registration form.
