Hello everybody ! I am new in this forum. I have been learning Swedish for a while, but I still have problems with listening and pronunciation. If you could suggest some Swedish channels on YouTube it would be of help. Thanks!

Hi everyone :) I think I'm 'officially' joining you all for Norwegian :D I've only just started, so any recommendations for additional study materials and especially native content (movies, tv series, maybe even simple books/short stories?) are very welcome! I'm also slowly making my way back through this entire topic :)

radio.nrk.no is my main resource for native audio content. You can filter according to categories, e.g. Podcasts. Subscription via RSS also works.

Six beautiful short Icelandic poems with side-by-side English translation here:

I thought others might enjoy - perhaps even those who aren't learning Icelandic (yet)!

The world is divided into those who have not yet learned Icelandic and those who, er, have not yet finished learning Icelandic...
(oh, and Icelanders. No offence, guys.)

Hello everyone! I am new to this forum.
I am learning Icelandic with 'Colloquial icelandic'. The book is not suited to me as it is not intended for beginners (though the cover states otherwise). I will use another method. :)

Hi raoulhjo! There's a very helpful list of resources here, and I'd especially recommend Alaric Hall's audio course (it sounds as if you wouldn't have any trouble with it being in English). Have fun and let us know how you get on 8-)
