Icelandic Language Day: “Tala íslensku með hreim” & The Women’s Table

W.O.M.E.N. is proud to support this initiative by the students of Icelandic as a second language at the University of Iceland! The association will be presenting the Women’s Table project at 16:30. Come join us to celebrate Icelandic with an accent!

Speaking Icelandic with an Accent is a series of events around the theme, Icelandic accents. They celebrate the diversity in the Icelandic language on Icelandic Language Day. The events will take place in the evening, beginning with a discussion „Icelandic, the most difficult language in the world? True or False?“, followed by two lectures, a poem in Icelandic, and an introduction to Tungupal (a new Icelandic grammar web app), finally concluding with a pub quiz and prizes! All events except the pub quiz will be in Veröld.

The event is a collaboration between Huldumál, the student association of Icelandic as a second language at the University of Iceland; Mímir, the student association of Icelandic at the University of Iceland; Tungupal, and W.O.M.E.N. in Iceland.
