The Icelandic course is all about getting to know the Icelandic language without formal grammar teaching. The students will be taught basic Icelandic vocabulary through lectures and exercises. Conversation exercises will include language games and problem-based learning in real situations. Pronunciation exercises will take many forms.
The course location is at the University Centre of the Westfjords in Ísafjörður.
In Ísafjörður, students will enjoy discovering the town´s quaint bakeries, wandering the streets, and exploring the coastline. Especially during wintertime, wind and weather can be harsh, but that's Iceland. Participating in everyday life in a small town in the countryside is a 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. Also, the University Centre offers an international, cross disciplinary master's program in Coastal and marine management.
