How do I learn Icelandic?

Rating: 4 puffins

It appears that Icelandic is impossibly difficult to learn! But not to fear: Daisy L. Neijmann makes it as palatable as possible. Colloquial Icelandic: The Complete Course for Beginners consists of a book, and an audiocassette or CD. It is about $50. for the set, and there are three reasons to buy it: 1) explanations are clear, and progression of the course well-paced, 2) the narrator has a lovely voice (apparently she's British), and 3) Daisy Neijmann is the Halldor Laxness (my favorite author!) Lecturer in Icelandic at University College London. Buy both the book and the recording.
