3 reasons Icelandic is hard
1. Icelandic has 24 different forms of the definite article whereas English uses only “the.”
2. All the words sound alike.
3. I can’t make those sounds.
Seriously. I was out for a walk with Audrey today and my upstairs neighbor stopped me and asked me something. I asked him to repeat it, and then had to admit that I couldn’t understand. He said, “Is she yours?” Three words. Three words that I know.
I’ll never learn Icelandic.
