Let's chat and play games in Icelandic!

The Reykjavik City Library offers free Icelandic practice meet-ups at three different library locations: Grófin Spöngin and Gerðuberg.

Those regular meet-ups are for anyone who wants to practice their Icelandic speaking skills in a friendly and relaxed environment. We chat, play different word games, solve crosswords, and have fun together!


We have games for all levels and teachers who help us chat so don't be afraid to join, even if you just started learning Icelandic!
