I thought I should persevere however and do my Icelandic "homework".

I am trying to learn the basics of the language for the next time I visit (unfortunately not till June, 2014) but also to impress my Viking boyfriend (ridiculously fluent in English; surely it's only fair that I try to return the favour).

In the meantime?
There is a fantastic free course available online through the University of Iceland (I think) to teach the language at many difficulty levels. I'm still on survival, and that's just what I need!

Have you ever tried to teach yourself a language? After learning French for over a decade, I am highly aware of the dedication and commitment required to even maintain the basics. Wish me luck!
