Program for parents and children together
Learing Icelandic through music (Krílasálmar)
Mondays at 10:30- 12 – starting october 16th 2023
This is a music course for families with young children. We do a routine of songs, dances and games which is an excellent way for foreign parents to learn and improve their Icelandic language skills and at the same time have a quality time with their little ones. We use a mixture of children songs about the body animals etc. and Sunday school songs. The class fits both Icelandic and foreign families and is also a good way to get to know families in a similar situation. The house opens at 10:30 and we will provide coffee and some snacks. The programs tarts around 11:00 and the routine takes around 30- 40 minutes. The last class in fall 2023 is Dec. 11.
The class is free of charge
Teachers: Helga Vilborg Sigurjónsdóttir and Angela Joransen
