I figured this would motivate me to stay on track with my year so I can get the hell out of here at the end of the year. Now, I know that people speak English in Iceland and I'd have no problems if I didn't learn any of the native tongue. But why would I do that? Half the fun of going to a foreign country is the different languages (although I adore listening to Icelanders speak in english with their super cute accents). I did learn a bit of Finnish before my last trip - and that almost broke me. That was a tough one but, I have some basic Norwegian, and since Icelandic is part of the same Nordic language group I'm hoping that gives me some sort of advantage!
So today is lesson #1. I may already be cowering under the covers from the strangeness of it when this post goes up, but I doubt it. I Got This!
And if I don't, I'll just nail down these three words...
Anyone out there speak Icelandic and want to be my speaking buddy?
