Icelandic Courses

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

Every summer (august-september) 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 in Ísafjörður invites you to join us in a friendly learning atmosphere where class work and fieldtrips are combined. For all further information about each course please take a look at the menu to the left or click the links below. Please contact islenska@uw.is if you have any questions about the courses. 

Language learning is an individual endeavor and different for everyone. Students should evaluate themselves 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.
