The good news is that most people in Iceland speak English! However, if you'd like to learn some of the Icelandic language, here are my top tips:
Learn some basic phrases before you arrive - there are some really good language apps such as Duolingo, Babbel and Rosetta Stone which can help you learn some basic phrases and vocabulary that you can use when you visit.
Speak to local people - this helps you to practice speaking the language as well as building up your confidence by taking yourself outside of your comfort zone. The best way to learn is to practice!
Watch Icelandic TV & films and listen to Icelandic radio/podcasts - this is the best way to practice learning the language day-to-day. You could listen to a podcast whilst walking in the park or watch the Icelandic news.
Here are some common words/phrases to learn
Hello = Halló
Thank you = Takk
Goodbye = Bless
