Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"Ideal for beginners and brushers-up alike, this enlarged and updated edition is a comprehensive, user-friendly guide to the essentials of Modern Icelandic, combining the teaching of the language at every stage with useful tips on day-to-day living in Iceland: food and drink, where to stay, how to get about, and how to ask intelligent questions about Icelandic history, culture, and geography. An undoubted ‘must’ for travellers to Iceland, whether as first-time or returning visitors!" Rory McTurk, University of Leeds, UK

"Neijmann's Colloquial Icelandic will both navigate you towards advanced communication skills and familiarize you with many specific Icelandic language concepts. It is comprehensive and extremely user-friendly at the same time—a must for a language as complex as Icelandic. For a self-study kit, it is as close as you can get to having your own private teacher and native guide to the local culture." Silvie Cinkova, Charles University in Prague, The Czech Republic
