So you voted for Icelandic and I have accepted your challenge. Let’s do this….

For the next 28 days using positive psychological methods, I am going to kickstart my language 51DrAxppB9L._SL110_learning. As a guide, I will be using 20 ways to improve language learning via positive psychology. There does not appear to be many resources online for learning Icelandic, but I did thankfully manage to find a complete beginners package on Amazon, click the pic for more details (affiliate link).

The Icelandic Resources I did find:

Language learning Library is jammed packed with exciting Icelandic resources!It also has site testimonies and ratings, which is awesome when trying to find the best sites to use.

My “Cunning”‘ Plan

Goals Seeds: 

Every evening I intend to write done 3 language learning goals for the following day. My first 3 are:

  1. Find some resources that will not only help me learn the language but keep me interested too.
  2. Research Icelandic Culture and history. I have already made a start on this and discovered there are 300,000 Icelandic speakers worldwide!
  3. Learn how to say “Hello”, “Bye”, “Please” and “Thank You”

 3 positive achievements 

  1. I know some facts already.
  2. I have found some amazing resources that are FREE!!!
  3. I  have an amazing supportive language learning community around me, thank you!

Support those who are struggling too.

Throughout my challenge, I will also be offering 20-minute pro bono motivational chats with those struggling to learn a new language or wanting some support with their self-esteem. I only have a limited number of spaces available so please contact me to book

Affirmations

Positive and feel good quotes are very important in language learning. Luckily I already have a list of my favourite motivational quotes

Connect with other Icelandic Speakers

Connecting with native and fluent Icelandic speakers will grow my fluency. At the time of writing this post, I know none, which is sad. So if you are a fluent or native Icelandic speaker please get in touch!

Visualise myself  having a conversation in Icelandic

This is hard to do when you don’t even know how to say “Hello” in Icelandic.

So I am taking a deep breath in, I can do this! I can learn Icelandic…
