The course focuses on your ability to communicate and therefore we will not focus on grammar training. Instead, we want to give you the opportunity to use the Icelandic that you learn in the course immediately.
Please find here the preliminary schedule.
Classroom learning in the morning, Mon-Fri, 09-12: Basics of grammar and vocabulary taught through lectures and exercises. Exercises in reading and writing skills up to CEFR level A1/A2/B1.
Electives in the afternoon, 14-16 or 16-18: In the afternoon, you choose from a variety of electives, including lectures, choir, pronunciation, conversation, language games and problem-based learning. A detailed description of the electives will be available at course start. Please find last year's electives brochure here. Students will have to sign up for the electives during the very first days of the course.
During week III there will be a focus on Gísla saga. You will be introduced to the famous saga in simple Icelandic, and you will watch an acclaimed stage version of Gísla saga, performed as a one-man production by Elfar Logi Hannesson. A visit to one of the settings of the saga, where you will have an opportunity to use your Icelandic, will give you a strong impression of the place.
