Dear anyone who wants to learn Icelandic,

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

Both of these courses are very similar to Duo and are very helpful.

Thank you. I will have a look at that. I played some concerts in Iceland in 2005, and a course like DuoLingo, would have made that trip even more enjoyable.

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.

Hi, thanks for the advice! However, hardly any of these courses have an audio function, which makes them rather less helpful ... Icelandic is by no means always spoken the way it is written, at least not to native English speakers. Or am I missing something?

July 8, 2017

https://www.duolingo.com/profile/NeonSam

Yes, the courses that I gave links to unfortunately don't have any sounds. However, I have found a great course with audio. Here it is - https://www.memrise.com/course/357011/icelandic-in-easy-stages-with-sound/. The first 10 tasks of this course just explain grammar and it starts teaching words at task 11. Hopefully this one's better.

July 8, 2017

https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Harpissima

Takk

July 8, 2017

https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Harpissima

Actually, though they do not have audio, there is a whole range of Icelandic courses, from Icelandic from A to Ö, Icelandic for Travellers to the loveliest Icelandic words. There's even a dictionary

My mother is half Icelandic and half Danish. Due to when my mom moved to this country she had to assimilate and her parents no longer spoke Icelandic in the house. My family would love to learn Icelandic and be able to talk to our family members in Iceland using their native language. My siblings and I would love to teach it to our children. Icelandic would be an amazing addition to Duolingo.

Do Memrise, so much better than Duolongo, and they have several Icelandic courses. Since starting on Memrise, I can hardly be bothered with Duolingo any more, the tediousness of endless repetitions is driving me crazy. Memrise targets individual words and phrases that you are having trouble learning, it doesn't make you repeat entire sessions needlessly!! Og så burde du vel egentlig også lære dansk, ikke -.- ?!

Icelandic is gorgeous. I have a mug that says " Ég hef ekki hugmynd um hvað stendur á þessum bolla", and even now I have no idea what this mug says.

Since Icelandic has been very isolated over the centuries, I'd love to see it as an insight into the Nordic/Scandinavian tongues, as well as seeing more of the ace compound words for modern items instilled by language purists.

October 17, 2017

https://www.duolingo.com/profile/-.Edwin.-

This thread was created four years ago and the request keeps the same.

As many languages, Icelandic has a rich literature and it’s a really appealing language. It has kept many of the archaic features of the Old Norse. You can read 1000-years-old eddas and sagas while you can talk about the last technology using the same language. A remarkable feature indeed!

I´m doing the Basic Icelandic course in Memrise, but I miss the Duolingo methodology. Memrise is nice, but… Man, to find “hefur þú tekið þátt í Ráðstefnu fjöltyngdra einstaklinga?” in the first lessons can be enough for a lot of people to get away!

May 26, 2019

https://www.duolingo.com/profile/slogger

See what they have at www.bliubliu.com . They even have quite a bit for Latin, so you may strike it rich for Icelandic .

You're welcome. Hope it turns out to be worthwhile for you; every day I use the site along with Duolingo.

Icelandic would be GREAT to learn. If I did not already have plenty to do, I'd start learning it. It's supposed to be rather similar to Old Norse--as close as you can get nowadays--and both languages seem really worth learning. Check this out if that sounds interesting: http://www.utexas.edu/cola/centers/lrc/eieol/norol-0-X.html .

https://www.duolingo.com/profile/magrenell

I can’t believe that on Duolingo you can waste your time on Klingon and learning to avoid the subtitles on Game of Thrones but you CANNOT learn one of the world’s most beautiful languages. Iceland is a sophisticated culture with a large diaspora despite its native population. They are proud of their country and it’s achievements. And it is nation with a comparatively young population, doing great things in tech and finance, not to mention the arts. There are many (and I include myself) who aspire to live and work in this amazing country. But I guess for Duolingo it’s okay to film Game of Thrones there, but NOT okay to bother with an Icelandic course. C’mon, Duolingo! You guys are brilliant! Those old Pimsleur cassette tapes just ain’t cutting it no more.

I really, really, wanna learn icelandic. Like I've been using icelandic online for years, mango languages through my library, and recently started going through íslenska fyrir alla... It just sucks that there are no classes near me and the lack of TV shows and subbed/dubbed movies in my country... Ordering books from Iceland does cost me a lot of moneeeeeey just for shipping. GAHHHH.

Does anyone recommend a textbook or something? I do know my linguistics prof at my uni does teach Icelandic but really far away from campus so I can't go there... And he came from iceland! Ughhg.

I have dabbled a little in Swedish because I have a friend... But my favorite nordic language is Icelandic followed by Norwegian. I hope both would be offered soon.

October 17, 2014

https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Xneb

You could try Colloquial Icelandic (might also be on the US Amazon for a similar price but didn't check). I've never used the Icelandic one, but I used the Danish one, which is a bit different as all the books in the series are, but I found it helpful

I'd kill to learn Icelandic on this site. It's mutually intelligible with Old West Norse and nothing draws me more to something than association with my ancestors. I tried learning it through Icelandic Online but I found the site extremely unhelpful. It just spews Icelandic at you like you should already know it, doesn't teach worth a damn.

May 4, 2017

https://www.duolingo.com/profile/JustusRobi3

Actually, it is disputed whether modern-day Icelanders could understand spoken Old Norse. (I think they probably couldn't.) However, Icelandic is much more conservativ than Continental Scandinavian (Swedish / Danish / Norwegian).

December 17, 2018

I think Icelandic would be so cool to learn as Iceland has so much interesting nature. I also think Icelandic would't be too hard to learn. it won't be easy though.

That's one reason why I have kind of shied away from suggesting it up until now on Duolingo but if enough people would be willing and able to contribute I might be able to lend a helping hand. :p Maybe the Duolingo team can assemble a list of potential contributors?

Hi guys, it looks like language drops (https://languagedrops.com) added icelandic to their app in November. Definitely not great for grammar, but good for some vocabulary (at least until duolingo Icelandic can happen :P). Currently I use the free version, which gives you 10 minutes of lessons a day and that isn't much, but it is a good addon thing to other language programs. Plus it does the pictures+icelandic word without showing the english every time, which happens to work better for me.

I'd love to learn Icelandic through duolingo, I'm a medieval studies student and will probably have to learn Icelandic at some point in the future due to most of the texts for northern Europe being written in it.

Of the languages not currently available on Duolingo (or in the incubator), Icelandic (and Old Norse) are at the top of the list of languages I would like to see added.

April 20, 2019

https://www.duolingo.com/profile/NatalieOldAcct.

Yes, I really wanted to learn Old Norse or its close cousin Icelandic to read the sagas but went for Swedish because these languages weren't offered here. But I would still love to study both Old Norse and Icelandic. I don't know why I like to focus on the northern European languages. Maybe because Swedish feels very close to English to me and a lot of English words have Old Norse roots. I have no known ancestors from these countries. Other things I like are their progressive social policies. Some of the other language learning websites do not seem to offer such a good learning experience so I will stick with Duolingo for now.

April 24, 2019

https://www.duolingo.com/profile/NorskStudent

Those are exactly some of the reasons I chose Norwegian (and started with Danish and Swedish, though I've focused on Norwegian). I'd love Icelandic to be on duolingo too.

https://www.duolingo.com/profile/jeann3

how many interested would-be icelandic speakers does duolingo want before they begin development on an icelandic module?

what if a school in iceland volunteered to supply material as a school project? would that help?

December 14, 2017

https://www.duolingo.com/profile/wliverno

I went through the free course taught by Alaric Hall and found it very helpful: https://alarichall.org.uk/teaching/modern_icelandic.php

In combination with listening to icelandic talk radio (http://radio.is:443/saga.m3u), I learned a lot and it took me about 3-4 months to get through all of the podcasts (repeating lessons until I had somewhat mastered the material). I also did the icelandiconline courses, which helped with mastering the alphabet, but it wasn't the best format and it was hard to practice older lessons. I recommend the Bjargir course at least from that website.

(but also a duolingo course would be great of course please :)

      Please add Icelandic! I’ve found other apps offering wording, but nothing that helps with phrasing, grammar & pronociation the way Duolingo does - and there’s not really options around for IRL lessons the way there may be for French or German (in the UK) so it would be incredibly useful if you offered Icelandic lessons and I’d definitely get a premium account we’re that the case.
