Icelandic is believed to have evolved from Old Norse. As part of the Germanic group of languages, Icelandic is closely related to German and Dutch and there are over 350,000 native speakers in the world today. Some English words such as 'ransack', 'berserk', and 'geyser' are derived from Icelandic. However, for English speakers, learning Icelandic can be challenging due to the complexity of the vocabulary, grammar, and pronunciation.
