Comanche Nation College language program looks to broaden audience
Officials at Comanche Nation College in Lawton hope to place parts of the college’s computer-based Comanche language programs online. That effort is facilitated in part by the Oklahoma Community Anchor Network, which seeks to bring broadband access to rural Oklahoma.
LAWTON — Learning to speak the Comanche language is different from trying to learn, say, German or Spanish.
When a student studying Spanish runs across an unfamiliar word, the dictionary or a more experienced speaker can be of help.
“That’s a little bit more difficult with an endangered language,” said Todd McDaniels, a professor at Comanche Nation College in Lawton.
