Hey All,
Would you recommend any good book on Icelandic language? I found one which was very old (from 60s-70s) and it has no audio.
Just to explain my experiences with the languages: my native is Russian, also I speak English. Can speak Polish, Czech, Dutch and Spanish but not that well as English.
I am looking for a book that can help me to understand Eddas and sagas, and, at the same time, to be ready for my trip to Iceland.
AnDie.

Your knowledge of languages is impressive. Have you considered translating our materials into Russian? Although we have members of the Brotherhood in Russia, they seem to keep a low profile.

This book is recommended for Icelandic:

Thank you, OdinBrotherhood.
I have ordered the book.
And it will be a great honor for me to translate the materials into Russian - you should have my personal e-mail to give me further information.

Hi Ventr,
My experience with Teach yourself for Dutch and Spanish were awful. Although, the Polish Get started with was great.
In any case, thank you.

Maybe awareness of bridges gang:

- Homophones, words of similar or same vibration-
- Ailm, the Holy Cross, Nordic Cross flags
- Iss as Ice in Icelandic, Is as the Ice rune of the Younger Futhark, Ice as Ice in English (Chris, Cristo, Christ)
- Mare E, Whole E, Sun E (Most optimistic denotation)
- In consideration of Mjölnir: Environmental Iron, Blood Iron (Hemoglobin), Fe, Faith (in Spanish), Fey, the Faery Triad- In consideration of Mjölnir
- In consideration of Bifröst: the spectrum as white light composed ROYGBIV
- With in relation to Icelandic as með, Soul in relation to Icelandic as sál, Spirit in relation to Icelandic as andi

Great ideas, just passing them along-
