One of the most requested languages on Duolingo is the beautiful language of Icelandic. It is a truly wonderful language that should certainly be more largely recognized. I'm calling out to everyone that speaks Icelandic to apply to the Incubator to add Icelandic for English speakers. If enough of us apply they'll surely let us work on it. If you know any good sites that teach Icelandic, leave a link in the comments. We can do this! Þakka þér fyrir alla. Gerum þetta. Ef við vinnum saman, getum við gert þetta með vellíðan.
Yeah, I realise this now, as I have looked through several forums explaining how despite hundreds of language requests, Duolingo seems to ignore them. However, the more attention language requests it gets, the better, I guess.
I've been dying for an Icelandic course on here :( For anyone interested in a nice Icelandic course elsewhere, try Mango Languages http://mangolanguages.com/ It does cost money ($20/mo USD), however, you can go to your local library and get access to a free account if they participate! I haven't used it much yet, but it does seem pretty nice so far. I like the layout of Duolingo courses better, but this is definitely a polished course you can use as an alternative until Duolingo gets one going! Also, Mango accounts (whether paid or through your library) are good for all of their languages. Good luck!
Don't most graduate students of Scandinavian studies have to take Icelandic? It seems that the majority of Danish, Swedish, and Norwegian students would like at least some knowledge of Icelandic. I acquired a fair amount of music from Iceland when I played some concerts there some years back.
