Quick Icelandic

Some useful phrases in Icelandic:
a = like a in father
e = like e in test
i, y = like i in little
u = like German ü in für or French u in tu
ö = like German ö in höher or French eu in neuf
æ sounds like eye
ð = like th in weather (voiced th)
þ = like th in thorn (unvoiced th)
Yes = Já
No = Nei
Thank you = Takk
You're welcome = þú ert velkominn/Gerðu svo vel
Please = Vinsamlegast/Takk


Excuse me = Fyrirgefðu
Hello = Halló/Góðan daginn
Goodbye = Bless


Where is ...? = Hvar er ...?
Airport = Flugvöllur
Departure = Brottför
Arrival = Koma


Help! = Hjálp!

I had no idea Icelandic was this difficult, I doubt there is any way can get past a 'Takk'!


Bon Voyage! Góða ferð! xx
