Icelandic Language

Nicholas93 gb United Kingdom

Hey Guys,

Looking forward to Hungarian on Lingq but do you we have any update on the progress of Icelandic? Pleaseee tell me we have some content already? haha.... If not I will try to search around to find willing volunteers. Any ideas, Zoran? :)

    Icelandic has been a dream Language for me. I have been really wanting to learn it. But I only use LingQ to learn Languages. I hope we can get some volunteers to do Icelandic mini stories for us. :)

    I've been slowly turning the lessons from icelandiconline.com for use in LingQ, but it will be sometime before I have them all, and even then I'm not sure I'll be able to share them over LingQ (maybe privately?). I've used the Teach Yourself Icelandic in the past, and currently Pimsleur and icelandiconline.com, both are decent. Also, the series Trapped on Netflix is pretty good. Disney has stuff in Icelandic as well. All of that is well and good, but having Icelandic on LingQ would be best. Irish and Icelandic are the two languages I've wanted to learn since I was a little kid.

    If there is any effort to pool resources to get the ministories done on here, I'd be in.

    I've messaged a few Icelandic teachers on italki trying to pursauade them to do the mini stories. But I believe the problem was that they didn't want to do it for free. (Which I don't blame them)

      I thought I remember Zoran, Mark, or maybe the Master himself staying something about them trading LingQ membership for their assistance. Maybe I'm wrong and I just accidentally thought of that myself. Either way, I have no personal interest in Icelandic myself, but I do hope you are successful in your quest.

        In one of his last videos on YouTube Steve said that LingQ is looking for people to provide more stories beyond the mini stories and they would be paid but he didn't want to go into detail.

    I am sorry but I don't have good news about Icelandic. We don't have any Mini Story translated into this language.

    If you know someone willing to help and work on them, in exchange for LingQ Premium, they can contact me on zoran(at)lingq.com

    I am learning Icelandic via books since it is not available here on LingQ, however I would LOVE to see it here.

    I will start working on putting the mini-stories into LingQ soon. I can not promise to finish the job, but I hope to.
