Icelandic Courses

Ísafjörður is an especially exciting place to learn Icelandic. A friendly small town in the magnificent surroundings of the remote Westfjords. 

In 2020 we offer a variety of Icelandic courses from level A1/A2 up to B2 as well as a one-week crash course. 

The University Centre of the Westfjords invites you to join us in a friendly learning atmosphere where class work, group work, and fieldwork are combined. Our progressive teaching style follows modern trends. 

For all further information about each course please take a look at the menu to the left or click the links below. Please note that some of the information may be from last year. Information are updated regularly. Please contact islenska@uw.is if you have any inquiries about the courses. 

Language learning is an individual endeavor and different for everyone. Students should themselves evaluate what course can be beneficial to their progress in learning Icelandic and apply accordingly. Please inform yourself about the Common European Framework of References for Languages (CEFR) and check out the self-assessment grid in order to profile your language skills. If you are unsure to what course you should apply to, please send us an email to islenska@uw.is.
