Hey everyone. This is a post to share resources to learn Icelandic. I started around a week ago and I'm very excited about the language, especially its connection with the viking age and medieval literature and sagas.
For learning the language I'm doing a course made by the University of Iceland and called icelandic online:
Link: http://icelandiconline.is/ I think it's a very good course since it's based in small games/exercises and has a lot of videos and recordings. They have courses up to B2-C1 for free but you can pay a fee and have a tutor which will help you.
Declesion of nouns, adjectives, verbs etc. (in Icelandic, but it's easy to understand): http://bin.arnastofnun.is/forsida/
Learning serie of videos: http://tungumalatorg.is/viltu_laera_islensku/en/

I have a couple of dictionaries for both english and german speakers: http://digicoll.library.wisc.edu/cgi-bin/IcelOnline/IcelOnline.TEId-idx?type=header=IcelOnline.IEOrd
For literature and sagas I've found a couple of webs that will be useful for learners:
And to finish we can also share music bands that sing in Icelandic: Sólstafir, Árstíðir Lífsins, Sigur Ros, Skálmöld, Samaris, Í svörtum fötum
Old Norse, old Icelandic, Norrœnt mál

Feel free to share everything you have and I'll add it here so everyone can use these ressources.
Kontinuum, Solsfatir, Skalmold, Sigur Ros... They have a lot of great bands despite they are only 300.000 people! Amazing.
Surprised you didn't mention Sigur Ros, probably the most popular Icelandic-language band out there.
Or Björk! :-O
Also, did you know Of Mice and Men is Icelandic? They sound so American.
I added the new suggestions of music bands, but some of them (Björk and Ásgeir) only sing in English right? I was looking for Icelandic-speaking music.
PD: I just added a few bands that came to my mind in that moment, so I left a lot behind, that's why I asked for your help to complete a reasonable list :)
Both are added :) Thanks for those awesome resources, they'll be pretty useful! :)
Thank you for the ressources! I'd love to learn Icelandic, so now I know where to start...
I will just wait for there to be an Icelandic course on Duolingo, tack så mycket :)
