In this three week course learning the language and culture will be the priority. The course will prepare students for daily life in Iceland and participation in the university community. It is therefore ideal for both university students and others that want to be able to participate in daily life in Iceland. The course includes 96 hours of varied and interesting instruction, as well as exciting excursions and day trips.

The students will be taught basic Icelandic and vocabulary through lectures and exercises. They will also achieve reading and writing skills up to CEFR level A1-A2. Conversation exercises will include language games and problem-based learning in real situations. Pronunciation exercises will take many forms.

This is an exciting summer course, in the magnificent surroundings of the remote Westfjords, and will increase students' skills in Icelandic. Participating in everyday life in a small community in the countryside is an especially pleasant way to get a feeling for Icelandic society.

The University Centre of the Westfjords has several years of experience in hosting field schools for foreign students and offering courses in Icelandic language and culture. The University Centre also offers an international, cross disciplinary master's program in Coastal and marine management.
