Conversation Cards

The cards are a great tool both for beginners, and advanced users (A1+), to practice their Icelandic speaking skills. They’re also an excellent tool to use with a study partner.

Each box contains 28 cards with questions and answers.

Press the arrows to see more.

  • There are questions on the front of the cards, along with colored dots, that indicate the difficulty level of each question.
  • On the back there are answers to the questions, or suggested answers.
  • A brief instruction booklet in English and Icelandic is included in each box.


For who?

The conversation cards are intended for beginners who are learning Icelandic and:

  1. want to practice what they have learned by having real conversations.
  2. want to speak Icelandic but don’t have the vocabulary to keep up a conversation.

The conversation cards are also for those who speak Icelandic and want to assist someone who is learning the language.

How to use?

Use the conversation cards to break the ice and begin a conversation with someone who:

  1. speaks Icelandic
  2. is learning Icelandic

The cards can be divided between two or more people and then the participants take turns asking and answering. You can also set up an interview with the cards. Then you can draw one card at a time.

It’s worth mentioning that repetition is very important in all language learning, so it can be good to use more than one method when going through the same conversation over and over again.

Where to use?

  • at home with family or friends who speak Icelandic, or are also learning it
  • at school or at work during breaks
  • in cafes with a tandem partner

The packages are fairly small and fit conveniently in a bag or a pocket, so you can take them with you anywhere. Therefore it’s definitely possible to use the conversation cards in more places then those mentioned above.

The Theme Boxes

The cards are a great tool for advanced beginners (A2+) to practice the declension of nouns and the use of prepositions with clothing nouns and location nouns.

Each box contains 200 cards and a short instruction booklet

Press the arrows to see more

  • A noun with a corresponding image and a color dot is on the front of the cards. The color dots indicate the difficulty level of the nouns declension.
  • On the back you can find information about which preposition to use with the noun, which inflectional category it belongs to, and an overview table which shows its declension.
  • The instruction booklet contains information on grammar and ideas on how to mix learning the inflections and games.


For who?

  • Students of all ages, who are learning Icelandic as a second language.
  • Teachers, other professionals, and mentors who are teaching or guiding those who are learning the language.

Why and where to use?

The purpose of the theme boxes, like other word cards from Íslenskunáman, is:

  • to make learning and teaching easier, and more fun,
  • to make grammar more accessible,
  • to offer a learning-by-doing resource,
  • to offer games that everyone can participate in,
  • to support peer education and change repetition in learning and teaching

The material is practical both for learning, and playing with family and friends as well as for professionals and instructors. It can therefore be used both as a fun board game at home and to make progress in complicated grammar.
