Icelandic is the language of approximately 300,000 people in Iceland, as well as additional speakers in Canada and Denmark. It is a modern version of Old Norse, the language of some of the greatest literary works from medieval Europe. Learning Icelandic will allow you to read and understand these literary works. Icelandic is in the Germanic family, making learning German, Dutch, or English easier, and knowing any of these languages makes learning Icelandic easier.
