Approximately 330,000 people have Icelandic as their first language. Most of them live in Iceland with other speakers of the language primarily being Icelanders living abroad in places such as Scandinavia, Mainland Europe and North America. Additionally, Icelandic is the first language of some second and third generation Icelanders in Canada and the United States but most of these speakers are seventy years or older by now.
