Ég rak mig á síðu sem gefur nemendum kost á að æfa sig í helstu erfiðleikum íslensku. Síðan býr yfir fræbærum æfingum og skýringarnar eru aðgengilegar og auðskildar.

Sumar eru erfiðari en aðrar, en allt í allt mjög gagnlegar. Ég mæli eindregið með þessari síðu:

Það er meira að segja ein æfing sem ég hef alls ekki botnað, um áhersluforskeyti... :oops:

The best site I've found is bragi (http://www2.hu-berlin.de/bragi/b0/b0_framburdur.htm). The problem is that it is in Icelandic.

TY Icelandic

TY Icelandic is the best book I have found for teaching Icelandic. The thing I like the most is that it uses the IPA (with a few changes, like /ø/ to ö and /θ/ to þ).

@Merlin: I think I can figure out the main points, so thanks for the link.

@ILuvEire: I have the book since Monday, but the girl I borrowed it from didn't have the CDs.

I've already figured out pronunciation's gonna be the most difficult thing to master. :?

I looked at your profile, I don't think you'll have much trouble pronouncing it. You speak Swedish and Flemish (that's like Dutch, right?), so I think that'll help you. If you spoke Norwegian it would be even easier, because they were the same language for a long time (I'm not exactly sure when the split was).

Sæl! I'm very interested in Icelandic and I'd like to start studying it soon. I've tried to study Icelandic on a website called Icelandic Only but the website was quite confusing and didn't explain much. I need to buy that TY Icelandic book - I used to study Japanese with a TY book years ago and I found it very helpful :)

There are lots of Disney videos with Icelandic transcription and English subtitles on YouTube. Here's a list of resources: Learning Icelandic. I also recommend listening to Utvarp Saga 99,4.

I would likewise agree, TYI is an amazing resource. The audio package is great because I have it on my iPod and can thus do coursework while on the train and so forth.

I've read some reviews saying that TY is good but doesn't cover everything (e.g. the subjunctive), so is there something good to continue with after TY?

I say read the Icelandic Wikipedia. That's what I'll do once I understand a couple hundred words. 8-)

Are there any good dictionaries out there? Either English-Icelandic or Swedish-Icelandic.

These are the ones I was able to find online, but you probably knew about them already:

http://en.wiktionary.org (any language > en)
http://sv.wiktionary.org (any language > sv)
http://is.wiktionary.org (any language > is)
http://www.dicts.info/dictionary.php?l1 ... =Icelandic
http://www.freelang.net/online/icelandic.php
http://www.jargot.com/icelandic
http://digicoll.library.wisc.edu/IcelOn ... .TEId.html

You can also use Google Translate as a dictionary. It's not ideal, but it might be helpful.

As for printed dictionaries, I don't have one, but I wish I did :lol:

Yeah, I knew of those already. So far I like to use google translate in combination with wiktionary articles. But I guess I'll buy a printed dictionary once I get further into my studies :).

Thanks for the help though.

I'd like to add that I've gotten some use out of Colloquial Icelandic, if you can get your hands on it. It's similar to the TY Icelandic, which I also enjoy :) I don't have the audio for CI but the TYI audio more than makes up for that. I saw a post on the first page mentioning Disney songs with subtitles; it's worth listening and reading! Plus, certain users (notably Tunfiskurinn) provide vocabulary from the songs in the video discriptions for Icelandic learners.

Aside from what's already been posted, the only site I can recommend is http://www.samkoma.com/mimir/mimintro.htm, which offers grammar references for Icelandic (in English!)

Hope this helps a bit!

Icelandic is most certainly on my list of languages to learn.
[Ja ah supper dar sind ähnlichkeiten zu deutsch also das wired es einfacher machine die sprache klingt einfach wundershön zu meinen ohren.]

I feel frustrated, This life is to much stress I have been threw boredom greater than being left to do nothing all year I am left with bordom greater than can be fathomed.
School is borring! School is more borrowing than doing nothing at all.
It's worse I can't code with it school is worse than the ever lasting missery of doing nothing at all. :'( I mean I complained about that this is worse this is way worse.
