This class is designed to introduce the Icelandic language and its unique mechanics.  These include the Icelandic alphabet and the sounds letters and combinations of letters make, noun gender, definite vs. indefinite nouns, numbers, pronouns, verb conjugation and noun declension.   These concepts will be pulled together to form and read simple sentence.  The goal is not to master these concepts, only to introduce them.  David will be the learning facilitator again.

Basic Icelandic - Level 1.5


Class is Full


Mondays at 5
pm Pacific/6pm Mountain/7pm Central/8pm Eastern. (online via Zoom)

Cost of course is $60 for the series. Limited to 10 students.


Course Syllabus

PREREQUISITE:   Students in this class should have either completed the Basic-Level 1 class or have had exposure to (not mastery of) the concepts outlined for Level 1.

This class provides a bridge between the Basic 1.0 and Basic 2.0 classes.  It's designed for those who have taken Basic 1.0 class who feel they want a review of the concepts from the Basic 1.0 class and a slower-paced learning of new concepts.  Beginning with an in-depth review of Basic 1, we'll slowly build on that foundation by introducing and practicing new grammar concepts and vocabulary.   This class will put more emphasis on speaking, in a safe and fun atmosphere.

Class size is limited to ten so there is sufficient time for all to speak. Students will be encouraged to use their knowledge to ask and answer questions aloud during class time, using what they are learning, often with visual prompts and support.  Birna Sigurbjörnsdóttir will facilitate the learning.
