Icelandic?

I've been trying to teach myself Icelandic for several months now, but it's quite difficult since it isn't exactly a popular language to learn - there aren't a whole lot of resources. Was wondering if there were any Icelanders on here that would like to contribute :) and eventually get Icelandic on Duolingo.

And if not, perhaps I could get recommendations for more books and whatnot on Icelandic.

The Icelandic government has a free course to learn the language with!

Here's some other resources:

Memrise, an app, has an Icelandic course program. I've never tried it so I can't tell you if it's good or not but its definitely a good resource.

If you want, in accordance with the advice in the Help Center document: How can I suggest a new language course?, you might visit other popular posts about Icelandic and upvote them and leave a comment. The Help Center document says “That will make the request more popular and make it stand out more, encouraging more people to add their votes.” Having looked down the list of popular posts, the first I found which mentioned Icelandic was Icelandic in Duolingo.

Icelandic would be great!

Here are some Duolingo discussions of it, with plenty of good online links:

discussion 1,
discussion 2,
discussion 3,
discussion 4.

There are others, besides. If you speak Russian or French there are some good discussions or resources online, too (if you want them).

Yeah I'd love Icelandic too. In the meantime that we wait, try using Memrise.com. It's very similar to Duolingo and has over 80 languages including Icelandic. Best of all, it's free! There are 3 Icelandic courses on there; a simple one, a Duolingo-style official one and one that teaches you every single Icelandic word in existence.

Simple course - https://www.memrise.com/course/351/basic-icelandic/

Duolingo-style course -https://www.memrise.com/course/134020/beginners-icelandic

Full-dictionary course - https://www.memrise.com/course/72275/first-5000-icelandic-words/

Also, to anyone who speaks Icelandic, don't be afraid to apply to the Duolingo Incubator. Just select the apply to contribute button, and when it asks you the language you wish to work on, click the last option 'add another' and write Icelandic.

Takk fyrir and happy learning.

I'm trying to open a Q&A website on stackexchange for all nordic languages. Including Icelandic. It would really help if you participate in this Q&A website. https://area51.stackexchange.com/proposals/113184/nordic-languages?referrer=UJwIZ3DtK9beNp88ckqOeg2

StarlessRogus Think about the German grammar ,but only times more difficult ,and with zero logic to it. That's the Icelandic grammar in nutshell ,and That's where you will give up.
