I’ve written many a review for Birgir for our lessons, which you can see below (maybe?)- bottom line, if you want a patient, flexible, fun, and dedicated person to help you improve your Icelandic at your own pace and comfort level, you’ve gotta go with Birgir. You won’t regret it.

After a 25-day streak of studying Birgir's Anki decks, I can now form some basic sentences and try responding to small talk. I can only imagine what big strides I could achieve in Icelandic as I continue taking lessons while studying new cards in between. I am very happy and satisfied to have started classes with Birgir this year. Looking forward to the next year!

Birgir is a fantastic teacher! He is very intuitive and knows how to help you communicate without getting bogged down with worrying about mistakes. He is very knowledgeable and knows just when to provide you with vocabulary and grammar hints. He explains Icelandic grammar in a way that is easy to understand. I can't wait for my next lesson!

Excellent lesson. This was an introductory lesson where we did some exercises and discussed how we might proceed. Birgir was good to speak with.
