My name is Svava K. Skúladóttir and I am a native speaker of Icelandic and a qualified teacher with several years’ experience of teaching languages in a variety of contexts.  Born and raised in South West Iceland, I am now based in London, UK, where – in addition to running my online Icelandic courses – I teach Icelandic at University College London’s Centre for Languages & International Education and other institutions.

Learning Icelandic Online

More and more people are showing an interest in learning Icelandic and this is something to celebrate!  It is a beautiful (alright, I’m biased), sometimes complex, often quirky language, full of challenges and delights. Like all languages!

Those who are interested in learning Icelandic are not all lucky enough to live in a place where attending Icelandic courses is a possibility and so starting up my Online Icelandic Lessons, on Skype, was the perfect way to connect with more people – in all corners of the world!

“Svava is one of those rare teachers with both passion for the subject matter and dedication to the success of her students. Learning Icelandic with Svava was rewarding and fun; she has a knack for making even the most challenging concepts seem simple and memorable.”
