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 translations and even sound files.

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

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).
www.verbix.com/languages/icelandic.shtml

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...
www.conterra.com/egill/isl

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

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

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).
www.skrudda.org/Icelandic

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

    Anything else.


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

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...

Hmm...

http://www.geonames.de/couis.html

Facts about inflected languages.

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

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...

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".
