Icelandic language on Duolingo

I believe that the Icelandic language should become available to learn on Duolingo because it would be interesting to learn a language that is closer to Old Norse. Learning how to read Norse mythology in Icelandic would take you back in time, to medieval ages, and reveal a whole new world to you.

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/

Takk fyrir and happy learning.


Luis confirmed on Reddit that it will eventually be added. Just like Mandarin, Finnish and Latin.


Mandarin is in the incubator on end of this year

Icelandic and Faroese are the two languages I'm crossing my fingers most passionately for to become available on DL. :)


I would suggest reading this post if you would like to suggest a new language for Doulingo :



Icelandic doesn't seem to be on the horizon for Duo.

In the meantime, IcelandicOnline.com offers a pretty good course for free.


Yeah....I've been waiting for it for years!
