Faroese - Hi everyone,

While searching for info on Scandinavia to fill my brain with, I discovered that the Faroe Islands actually have their own language, Faroese, as well as them speaking Danish (The Faroes are kinda owned by Denmark).
Faroese is a germanic language similar to Icelandic and some northern dialects of Norwegian.
Being fascinated by Scandinavia as a whole, I am rather intreagued by Faroese and thought maybe a discuss could be started for the language if enough people are interested.
I can provide some basics of the language myself but being a learner also, there is only so much I can do at the moment. So if there's anybody out there who does know quite a bit of the language and would like to help, that would be fantastic!

If anybody is interested, let me know by posting here on this thread. Thanks! :)

- Heck yes.

The first thing I thought when I ran across this place was "What?!?! No Faroese discuss?!"
