doorsto asked: Hi. I think it's very nice of you to answer all the questions people ask here. I've seen that you studied in Brazil and learned the portuguese and it's interesting to know that someone in Iceland got interest in my language. I'm portuguese. Do you know if there are any jobs in Iceland where the portuguese language could be and asset? Is there any portuguese or brazilian living in Iceland?
No there aren’t many Portuguese speaking people here, 468 from Portugal, 3 from Angola, 9 from Mozambique and 79 from Brazil.
All tourism related jobs value any foreign language you may know. Still there aren’t that many Portuguese speaking tourists, so unless the company specializes in Portuguese, the language by itself isn’t that much of asset. Even when I worked as a guide I only spoke Portuguese with clients once every month or so. Aventuras árticas (http://www.aventurasarticas.es/) is run by a Portuguese friend of mine. They focus mostly on Spanish markets, but also a bit on Portuguese.
Anonymous asked: What do you think about the idea of doing a year of my high school in iceland? I AM BRAZILIAN and want to GO for an university there, do U think this exchange could help me? How are people there? How do they receive foreigners? Is IT difficult to make friends? And how about the food? I AM very worried
I myself did an exchange in Brazil for a year and I can tell you that an exchange year in high school is one of the best things you can do in your life. I chose Brazil because it was far away and different. I think a Iceland would be a great choice for a Brazilian for all the same reasons.

reileyyyyy asked: Hi! So it's my dream to go to Iceland. I'm a sophomore in high school in the US. I'm starting to think about college in Iceland, but I want to study forensic science. Do they offer that? And do you know the tuition fees for an exchange student?
Tuition fees are minimal. Last time I checked they were 50.000 ISK per year.
I’m pretty sure forensic science is not taught in Iceland. You could of course study chemistry or something related.
Anonymous asked: Hi. I'm going to Iceland with my class in April. But i was just wondering; how is the weather in April? How hot or cold is it? And when does the sun go down etc... :)
Sunset will be around 20:30 and sunrise at around 6:00. The weather in Iceland is very hard to predict, particularly in spring and fall. You can take a look at the average temperatures in Iceland to get a rough idea.. But temperature never says much about the weather in Iceland. This is a wet and windy island, so wind and rain are the main factors. Be prepared, bring some good waterproof boots, pants and jacket.

adorkable111 asked: Hi, I was hoping you could help me. I'm a Licensed Massage therapist in The States. What would I need to do to get licensed there? Or at that is there even a need for massage therapists? I would really love to live in Iceland and need info.
I don’t know, but you might try and get answers from FA (Fjölbrautaskólinn í Ármúla), which I think is the main school for massage. Their email is firstname.lastname@example.org.
this-is-eirikur asked: Regarding the coffee: I found that the coffee at Reykjavík coffee shops was excellent. The Kaffitár and Illy brands were available in many places and were fairly dependably good. Community bakeries (especially as you get farther from city centres) were hit and miss, sometimes serving pretty bad coffee.
