Best Icelandic book ever! (Seeing as they're are few.) It doesn't throw everything at you at once! I highly recommend the audio!

What can I say? I said most of what had to be said in my headline.

This is, by far, the BEST Icelandic course I've seen¿it teaches fully and lets me experience the language. All the other Icelandic books I have ever purchased seem to like to throw pages of conjugations and inflexions in my face. This book, however, teaches me more how to speak the language, and also gives an excellent insight into the culture. If you are thinking about buying Einarsson's or Glendening's books, DON'T!

This book is excellent for the beginner of learning the well preserved Icelandic language. It is seperated in many chapters and gives you excersises through the whole book. It is well written and easy to comprehend and learn. An excellent start to fluent Icelandic!
