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!

Four lessons in with Birgir and I'm already seeing progress. Birgir displays effortless knowledge of Icelandic grammar and his enthusiasm is contagious and motivating. He provides an atmosphere where you can be comfortable to speak freely without fear of making mistakes because mistakes are opportunities to learn and he capitalises on those opportunities. I'm looking forward to many more lessons!

Just had my first lesson which I enjoyed a lot. Birgir is really patient and helpful, even though I'm a complete beginner.
