This book is intended to be an introduction to reading, writing, and speaking modern Icelandic. Beginning with lessons on the language's alphabet and pronunciation, students may work into Icelandic sentences and conversations with more complex grammar and vocabulary. Each chapter contains several self-guided exercises (answer key included), and there are Iceland-English and English-Icelandic dictionaries for reference.
