    Intercultural Centre: New Variation of Icelandic Emerging

    A new variation of Icelandic language is emerging among immigrants to Iceland, according to Ingibjörg Hafstad, Director of Education at Iceland’s Intercultural Centre and reported by RÚV. The new language is forming amongst immigrants who do not have a common language other than Icelandic and consist in the same mistakes being made repeatedly in Icelandic. According to Hafstad, the root of the problem is that immigrants rarely hear Icelandic spoken, since Icelanders almost inevitably speak English with them.

    Does this mean immigrants don't socialize much with ethnic Icelanders?

    I'd like to know the ethnic background of these immigrants.

    Wrong. The largest contingents are from Poland, Denmark, Germany and the Philippines.

    Who the hell is invading Iceland and why? Iceland should be regarded as a sacred place of purity and should be protected.

    There are some foreigners in Iceland, but they arent as much as in other European countries.

    The foreigner-rate in Iceland is around 3,5% (Year 2003). The biggest group of these foreigners are Poles (18,2%), Danes (8,6%), Philippinos (6,0%, mostly working in pubs in the big cities) and Germans (5,4%).

    So most of these foreigners are, at least, white and European.

    A census from the year 2005 said that there are around 600 muslims in Iceland. That are less than 0,1%. ( http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Islam_in_Iceland )

    I hope I could help.

    I'm guessing the why in your first sentence is answered by the should in your second. I've always been amazed at how folks who live in the city start thinking of a country lifestyle as being healthier and better and so move to the country in huge numbers and then insist that they get their Starbucks and their Blockbuster and their McDonald's so that country life can be bearable. Within ten years, the country becomes city.

    I wouldn't be surprised if a lot of the immigrants in Iceland are there because they see Iceland as pure and they want to escape immigration in their home countries.

    It's a funny world.
