About the book
New Path, is book with 12 easy reader´s stories, for people of foreign origin who would like to improve their Icelandic skills, and previously finished with basic levels. The idea of this book came from my friend Becky, she is from Spain and has been here since 1995. She told me that there is need for this kind of books here in the market, for people of foreign origin that are fun to read. I have worked with people of foreign origin and enjoyed to write, therefore I have decide to write this book.

The book´s content is about Icelandic culture, language, old and new customs. Old and new words and phrases are explained in an easy and fun way, so everybody is able to understand. The stories are full of fun, different variety and positive, so people will like them and approach it with open mind. Each story is independent and are about adventures, we go to a world of animals,still objects are given life, and people learn new things and many more.

The main goal for this books is that people of foreign origin, will be quicker to learn to read and write. Which follows when people start talking Icelandic. People will be faster to fit into the society, they will be able to read more and understand the language.

In order for the book to become reality and get into the hands of those who needed. Will your contribution mean a lot, and we are very thankful for your kind help. Special education teachers said; “that schools which are teaching adults need these types of books.” Imagine all that people who came to Iceland and change something for good in our society. If they just gave up and left, that would have been great lost. We have to take action and help people to adapt to our society. This book are one step of the many steps forward to building the new Icelanders.
