Icelandic, English, the Nordic languages, and German are widely spoken in Iceland. There are no other official languages in Iceland, but like all the Scandinavian countries, they speak English and usually at a very good level. Some Icelandic people may speak Norwegian, Danish or Swedish, but it all depends. -- The only languages spoken in Iceland, *besides Icelandic* are only languages you might expect from immigrants, about 7% of the population, in 2008. A large portion of these immigrants were non-permanent workers of some sort mainly from Poland, Lithuania or Thailand. Oh, and Icelanders are required by law to go to school ^^, and are therefore learn Danish, English and have the option of choosing German, French or recently Spanish. Iceland is a rare example of a monolingual society. The only two languages in Iceland are: Icelandic Icelandic sign language (only used by about 60,000 people). If you think of it a long time ago ( about year 1500) the vikings set sail on a light ship called the Drakor to explore the sea. They are the one to discover Iceland and Groenland. The vikings lived in Norway,Sweden and Finland which i think they have a language of there own so the Icelanders could speak these 3 languages and if you actually want to find out how about you go there yourself WIKIANSWERS ROCK!!!!!!!!!!!! spongebob too!!!!!!!!!:)

Iceland along with Denmark stayed neutral (not on a side); Iceland was ruled by Denmark before WW2 but when Germany invaded Denmark the British government sent forces to Iceland to prevent German troops from landing. Officially Iceland was still part of Denmark but under the protection of the British, and later the American, government.
