Publisher's Summary

The Easiest and Fastest Way to Learn Icelandic

Whether you want to travel, communicate with friends or colleagues, reconnect with family, or just understand more of what's going on in the world around you, learning Icelandic will expand your horizons and immeasurably enrich your life.

The best part is that it doesn't have to be difficult or take years to master. Thirty minutes a day is all it takes, and we get you speaking right from the first day. Pimsleur courses use a scientifically proven method that puts you in control of your learning. If you've tried other language learning methods but found they simply didn't stick, then you owe it to yourself to give Pimsleur a try.

Why Pimsleur?

  • Quick + easy
  • Only 30 minutes a day

  • Proven method - works when other methods fail
  • Self-paced - go fast or go slow; it's up to you
  • Based in science - developed using proven research on memory and learning
  • Cost-effective - less expensive than classes or immersion and features all native speakers
  • Genius - triggers your brain's natural aptitude to learn

What's Included?

  • Thirty 30-minute audio lessons

  • In total, 18 hours of audio, all featuring native speakers
  • A reading booklet and user's guide

What You'll Learn

In the first 10 lessons, you'll cover the basics: saying hello, asking for or giving information, scheduling a meal or a meeting, asking for or giving basic directions, and much more. You'll be able to handle minimum courtesy requirements, understand much of what you hear, and be understood at a beginning level but with near-native pronunciation skills.

In the next 10 lessons, you'll build on what you've learned. Expand your menu, increase your scheduling abilities from general to specific, start to deal with currency and exchanging money, refine your conversations, and add over a hundred new vocabulary items. You'll understand more of what you hear and be able to participate with speech that is smoother and more confident.

In the final 10 lessons, you'll be speaking and understanding at an intermediate level. In this phase more directions are given in Icelandic, which moves your learning to a whole new plane. Lessons include shopping, visiting friends, going to a restaurant, plans for the evening, car trips, and talking about family. You'll be able to speak comfortably about things that happened in the past and make plans for the future.

    Story
    "Effective method to learn very basic Icelandic"
    If you could sum up Pimsleur Icelandic Level 1 in three words, what would they be?

    Effective learning, fun


    What was most disappointing about Pimsleur’s story?

    Not much of a plot...


    Did the narration match the pace of the story?

    Slow and pleasant


    Did you have an emotional reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    Lots of laughs


    Any additional comments?

    Occurred to me that the storyline in all Pimsleur language courses is very similar.
    Anyway, would love to see a Level 2 course!
