Icelandic for English speakers? Can anyone contribute? Please. Please. Please. Pretty please?
It's an excellent idea, but I think the best way to start a course is to go find and contact people who would be willing to work on it. If Icelandic speakers are on Duolingo, they might already have applied.
The Incubator says nothing about such a course... last I checked :/ How do I find people ready to contribute?
Your guess is as good as mine. I was interested in a Welsh course, so I found the email address for BBC Wales and asked if they could provide or advertise for bilingual people to help. No response as of yet, but I'll try something else eventually. I would recommend finding some kind of Icelandic language website and getting in touch with the people there. I'm sure they'd love to help.
Alright. And A Welsh course sounds fun! xD Hope it all works out and we get one!
If you want to have a little fun while waiting, you can learn faux-Icelandic. Icelandic is closely related to the Scandinavian languages, of which you can currently learn Danish on Duolingo. To turn Danish into faux-Icelandic, just add the ending '-ur' to random words here and there. For example, Danish 'fersk fisk' (fresh fish) can become 'ferskur fiskur'. The given example actually happens to be genuine Icelandic, but in most cases you might just end up offending an Icelander ... so proceed at your own risk :)
Icelandic would be quite fun to learn, especially with all their weird symbols!
It's the closest language to the original language spoken by the vikings and Norse as well.
I would really appreciate this course. Icelandic is truly a fascinating language, due to the fact that it preserved most of the Proto-Germanic grammar.
Um, the status is that... nothing has started and no plans have been made.
Too bad, I believe there could be a group of learners of Icelandic. A small group, but a group, nonetheless.
