Opportunities and Challenges
Opportunities: 
We have a tremendous opportunity through the school system to provide the students with language teaching.
Challenges: 
The biggest challenge is that our fluent speakers are elderly. Unfortunately they are passing away at an alarming rate. Finding qualified language instructors who are fluent themselves is also a monumental task.
