Icelandic

Icelandic is a North Germanic language that is spoken by about 320,000 people, mostly in Iceland. Most Western European languages have greatly reduced levels of inflection, particularly noun declension. In contrast, Icelandic retains a four-case synthetic grammar comparable to German, though considerably more conservative and synthetic.

It is useful to know some Icelandic despite the fact that the language is mostly spoken only in Iceland, because the language is closest to the Old Norse that was spoken in Scandinavia from the 10th century. You might have also heard about the singer Björk and the band called Sigur Rós?
