Opportunities and Challenges
Opportunities: 
G.W.E.S. has explored cd-roms and DVDs and audio CD's in the past. All still in high demand to date. With the electronic industry being very strong, Audio CD's is still a very popular medium. Audio CD's can be transferred onto a PC and then transferred onto any type of medium. This project proposes using Audio CD as a medium as it has a wide variety in capability's.
Challenges: 
It is not known what mediums our non-speakers (Gitxsanimx) use to learn. It may be Internet websites, cd-rom's or books. While most mediums are available in our Nation, the availability of specific language learning materials have not really been examined as to which is more accessible.
