- I'd like to learn too. So far I can only do english and some spanish. I've seen a few icelandic lessons online, but nothing too great.

Any Icelandic people out there? - I also want to learn some Icelandic. Just the fact that it stems from Old Norse and I speak Norwgian I'm very much interested :)

- I also am interested in learning Icelandic, and that's why I signed up for this site, but I see no way of learning it (of course, I haven't looked much). Any help?

First there needs to be someone that knows Icelandic as well as English sufficently well to make good Phrases. Unfortunately I havn't seen anyone with those skills around yet :( so it might take a while before that part is finished.

Icelandic pages - Hi all!

I did try to search on google for pages from domain .is with Icelandic words. As I am from Norway I have to guess, but since the languages are somewhat related it is easier for me to guess than for people from further away.


In Google, enter:
<word> site:.is

With words:
hugleik, eki, smokk, koke, hamborgari, pylsur, and so on.

You will find pages that can help you along finding more words or even pages that can teach Icelandic.

Other searches have revealed:
http://www.pcmessages.com/egill/isl/lesson1.html
http://www.geocities.com/ragry/alph.htm

I am sure there are even more!

Good book - I recently bought "teach your-self Icelandic" it is really good so far and gives you a good pace of about two lessons a day with one review lesson. Moderate prize for having Cds, I bought it for twenty-five dollars. If you decide to buy it, buy the Jonsdóttir version the other one is not very good.
