ALONG WITH THESE CENTERS, THE INSTITUTE PROGRAM WAS ESTABLISHED FOR ADVANCED TRAINING OF ELEMENTARY AND SECONDARY TEACHERS OF MODERN FOREIGN LANGUAGES. DURING THE INSTITUTE PROGRAM'S FIRST 2 YEARS OF OPERATION, 49 SUMMER AND 9 FULL-YEAR INSTITUTES WERE CONDUCTED, TRAINING OVER 3,000 TEACHERS. TRAINING WAS OFFERED IN FRENCH, SPANISH, GERMAN, RUSSIAN, AND ITALIAN. FACTORS LEADING TO THE VARYING DEGREES OF SUCCESS OF THESE INSTITUTES ARE OUTLINED IN THE REPORT. (JH)
