A North Germanic language related to Norwegian and Danish, Icelandic is actually grammatically comparable to Latin or Ancient Greek. Due in large part to Iceland’s remote location, the linguistic changes that occurred in other Scandinavian languages are not seen in Icelandic, which still has complicated grammar systems. In fact, the Icelandic Sagas in Old Norse can be read by Icelanders today with little difficulty as the written language is largely unchanged in over 800 years! Students can supplement the Beginner’s guide with the Icelandic Practical Dictionary, also by Helga Helmisdóttir.
