Links -
Here are some useful links to many webpages that are teaching for free. Moste of them are teaching grammar but some of them have phonetic Phrases and even sound files.

Here is a page including alot of grammar information and more.
[url]www.samkoma.com/mimir/mimir.htm[/url]

Verbs and conjugation (There are some 280.000-290.000 speakers in Iceland, not what they claim on that page but it's a good page serving it's purpose).
[url]www.verbix.c../../languages/icelandic.shtml[/url]

When you use this webpage, be sure you're NOT viewing a page teaching the old Icelandic (old Norse) because they offer both modern and old...
[url]www.conterra.com/egill/isl[/url]

An Idio's Guide to Icelandic (they are only teaching the easiest way of learning the grammar, not the perfect one).
[url]http://members.lycos.co.uk/mareka/iceland/icelandic.html[/url]

I've not read much on this page but I hope it helps you in some way...
[url]http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Icelandic_language[/url]

This is a collection of files and it's not very organized but if you look with patience, you will find something to help you with Icelandic (even sound files).
[url]www.skrudda.org/Icelandic[/url]

Here you can see how Icelandic is pronounced phonetically in English.
[url]www.geocities.com/entercarp/stuff/icelandic.html[/url]

Anything else.

This is just an article about Icelandic if you're interested but it doesn't teach anything...
[url]www.nordals.hi.is/isl/staffisl/attitudes.html[/url]

Here is a page that you can use to try to find the right spelled word in any language. For example, if you're not sure which of these two words is correct: beautyfull or beutyfull you tipe them both in and then you have to trust that the word that gets more results is most likely the correct one. You can use google for the same purpose if you use the right method...

Here are some pages written in Icelandic (so they don't help much, but here they are anyway).

If you know about more webpages that can help people (for free), please tell us about them!

ask for help - What does "Pres.I." refer to? Present what?
and also "Pres.S."?

I tried Mimir and it's a fairly helpful website. Takk, Gummi^-^.

- Where did you find the words "pres.I." and "pres.S."? Maybe I know what it is if you tell me the webpage...

- Hć, čg heiti Ashlee :P

I started on the University of Iceland's course. It's fun and easy, which makes me think I need a good solid grammar book :P

- I think "pres. I." is "present indicative" and "pres. S." "present subjunctive".
