“I really enjoy using Optilingo – the focus on listening and repeating is different to other apps which focus on reading and typing. I particularly like the use of phrases as opposed to single words – you get introduced to tenses and plurals in useful sentences without having to drill conjugations and endings outside of context.”

“Amazingly effective! I love the fact that I can just listen to the app while doing chores, so I don’t really need to dedicate extra time for language learning. Once I’m done with one language I can move on to another one, or redo one to refresh.”

Why learning Icelandic with OptiLingo is different

For every person who tries to learn Icelandic, there’s one who gives up. The most common reason is that people feel that despite all their efforts, they don’t make progress. It turns the very concept of learning a language into something that feels impossible to accomplish.

The reason most people fail at learning Icelandic isn’t that they can’t or that they’re bad at it. It’s because most Icelandic learning programs use inefficient methods. And if you’ve ever had to memorize verb conjugations or stand up and speak to a class of strangers, you get it. OptiLingo is different.

Instead of dropping you off in the deep end and seeing if you can swim, we guide you through the most common words and phrases. This means you can start speaking confidently from your first lesson. We also know that for you to truly learn a language, your lessons need to be stress-free and entertaining.

Most importantly, you need to learn Icelandic in a way that builds on your natural ability to learn a language. And that’s exactly why it works.

“I tried (and failed) to learn German in highschool. In the classroom there was very little opportunity to speak German. Same thing with the commercial programs that only teach you what to say as a tourist. But I wanted to learn to communicate in everyday situations. I really like how the German course focuses on everyday phrases. I also like how the phrases can be mixed and matched to say even more useful things. Overall, I’m very happy with my results so far.”

How OptiLingo helps you learn Icelandic easier

Optilingo is a great way to learn Icelandic without having to stress out about endless tests, memorization, and drilling. Instead, we focus on getting you speaking from your first lesson.

But there’s more to it than that.

What Is Guided Immersion?

OptiLingo is built on two methodologies: Guided Immersion and Spaced Repetition Systems. This foundation makes learning a new language fast, practical, and fun.

Guided Immersion uses a combination of high-frequency phrases, comprehensible input, and spaced repetition systems to help you reach fluency naturally.

During lessons, you’ll also learn how and why you use a certain word or phrase. All without memorizing countless grammatical rules and figure out when to apply them.

Why Guided Immersion Works:

1 It’s the 80/20 approach to language learning, focusing on high-frequency vocab. You learn what you need to speak to locals.
2 We present the vocab in the CONTEXT of highly useful phrases and sentences that are short, simple, and easy to remember.
3 The phrases and sentences you learn cover a broad spectrum of grammatical structures, so you don’t have to memorize grammatical rules separately (or at all)
4 We design each lesson with mixed and matched phrases, helping you learn how to speak on a range of topics in an easy, organic way.
5 Our entire program come works in a linear SRS (5-day) study plan, further reducing the need to memorize content.

Practice with flexibility

With OptiLingo, our lessons are short, only 20 minutes a day, 5 days a week. Take weekends off. Go out with friends. Enjoy a break. Relax.

There’s no pressure to stop everything and study. And if you get behind, you can quickly catch up without stressing out.

Relax and enjoy fluency

OptiLingo lets you make mistakes. Our intuitive platform doesn’t stop you every time you make a small slip-up because we understand that making mistakes is part of your journey.

Instead, we provide a relaxed environment that naturally builds the confidence you need to start speaking in a new language.

“The lessons were easy to learn and interesting. They were never boring and I did not feel overwhelmed. It’s a solid language learning app. I’m very happy and very impressed.”

Why you should learn Icelandic

There are so many reasons to learn Icelandic. If you learn Icelandic, you talk to more people, explore new areas at home, and gain a deeper experience when traveling abroad. It also looks great on your CV and it can open the door to higher paying jobs.

Plus, there are a LOT of Icelandic speaking countries out there. So, you’ll have plenty of opportunities to use what you learn.

How many people speak Icelandic?

Over 475 million people speak Icelandic as their mother tongue. This makes Icelandic the second largest language in terms of native speakers. But, we also can’t forget about the 95 million people in the world who speak Icelandic as a second language.

This means that there are over 572 million Icelandic speakers in the world. Wow.

Where Is Icelandic an official language?

Icelandic isn’t just widely spoken in terms of population. The number of countries which have Icelandic as an official language is also extremely large. Icelandic is the official language of 21 countries.

Is Icelandic hard to learn?

Not at all. For native English speakers, mastering the Icelandic language is easy. It’s actually one of the easiest foreign languages to learn.

But, you can actually make learning Icelandic easier and faster with the right learning method.

Language learning should never be boring. It should always be exciting and engaging. But, it should also help you progress steadily. No matter how fun a language learning game is, it’s not effective if you can’t comfortably speak the language to locals.
