Opportunities and Challenges
Opportunities: 
There are 5 individuals that have their Carrier Language Certificate, and are able to create new material and teach the Language. There is also elders in the community that can speak, and read the language that are able to help with the planning and preparation of a Carrier Language Workbook geared towards the younger generation. The younger general, and imtermediate levels.
Challenges: 
The Carrier Language is slowly diminishing, and not a lot of people speak the Language. They may understand, but can't speak the actual language. The book is going to be created in the summer, and we would have to see who is in the community and have dedication in creating a work book for all levels of learning up ages 3-5, and Kindergarten to Grade 6.
