We expect that you have none or little knowledge of Icelandic. Our course will build on easy Icelandic and basic vocabulary.  
If you would like to you can work through the "Icelandic online" internet course on your own, but we do not expect our participants in this course to do so. Please calculate approximately 50 hours of work for the whole "Icelandic online" course. It is accessible at www.icelandic.com. Please note that it is better to do the first three chapters diligently than to hurry through the whole course.
