Icelandic holiday verbs : free worksheet

Learning Icelandic? Want to talk about your holidays past, present and future?

Our Nordic learning team has just put together this free worksheet to help you do just that! The worksheet features ten verb phrases to cover fun stuff you do on holiday. It’s completely in Icelandic, with spaces for you to write translations. And all ten verbs are presented in present, past and future examples, to really stretch your tense usage.

For talking about future plans, the team made use of the supremely useful Icelandic word ætla. While not strictly the grammatical future tense in Icelandic (this is formed with munu instead), it is a hugely useful little word for speaking about future intentions, covering the sense of ‘to intend to …‘ or ‘to be planning to …’ in English.

Welsh gets the Verb Blitz treatment!

Learners of Welsh now have the chance to drill those tricky verb forms, with the release of Welsh Verb Blitz for Android!

Combining reference and drill tools, Welsh Verb Blitz is a great way to memorise some of the key periphrastic and declined forms of over 80 colloquial Welsh verbs. Users can even switch between North and South Wales varieties, as there are some key differences between the two – for instance, the North’s preference for o (‘he’) instead of e.

The verbs in the app, as always, represent some of the most commonly used words in the Welsh language, making Welsh Verb Blitz a great vocabulary builder / consolidator too.

Welsh Verb Blitz for Android is free from the Google Player Store at this link! Happy learning!
