Once you get serious about learning Icelandic, you’ll come up against that big, potentially scary wall called declensions.
These determine the many forms that Icelandic nouns can take, depending on their meaning and role in the sentence. They’re notoriously difficult for foreign learners, as it’s often hard to learn which ending goes with which case, gender and number – and then you have the indefinite / definite distinction to add to the mix, too.
Finally, there’s a new Android app from GeoGlot, which will take this often overwhelming task down a few notches in the fear factor!
Icelandic Noun Master is both an interactive reference tool and a drill practice machine. It lists the key declension patterns, and contains over a hundred model nouns to browse. Not only that, but the multichoice and gapfill quizzes test you on those tricky endings – and you can choose to focus on just one case (nominative, accusative, dative or genitive) or all of them. It will even track your progress and report the cases that you’ve been finding most difficult in the games.
So, don’t shy away from noun declensions – become a Noun Master with our latest app!
As always, GeoGlot apps are made by language lovers / learners for the same. To ensure it’s available for all learners, Icelandic Noun Master is free and supported by ads (as unobtrusive as possible, and never in any of the games!).
