FINALLY...After 4 years...we're back!!!

...And we're SO excited to see you in person! AIM Summer Institute has been the highlight of every summer since the early days of AIM. Many new friends and lasting memories have been made over the years. We look forward to seeing some familiar faces, and meeting new ones!

About Summer Institute

Connect in person and share best practices with teachers from across North America and around the world who share a passion for languages and innovative teaching practices.

The Summer Institute will enable new teachers to learn about the unique techniques and strategies used in the AIM, and experienced teachers to deepen their knowledge and skills.

A wealth of topics will be covered for both new and experienced AIM teachers.

AIM is a balanced literacy approach that uses effective strategies and techniques to accelerate language acquisition. Through its multimodal design, AIM is a methodology that provides support for all learners with varying learning styles, intelligences and strengths. Embedded in the design of the methodology are many principles of Universal Design for Learning and AIM has proven to be successful at ensuring that inclusion is possible in a second language classroom!
