Revival programs seek to get community members speaking Language again.
There are three types Language revival programs:
- Language revitalisation projects occur in communities where a language still spoken by the older generation needs special support for it to be transmitted to the younger generations.
- Language renewal projects draw on a communities oral tradition but can occur in situations where Language speakers do not have full language knowledge.
- Language reclamation projects can occur in situations where there are no speakers or partial speakers. These programs rely on historical sources to provide knowledge.
The NSW Board of Adult and Community Education (BACE) has developed a training package for community members interested in starting a Language Revivial Program. How to start a Language Revival Program.
