The Faroe Islands: Unique History, Culture, and Language
The Faroe Islands were first settled by Irish monks, and while Faroese originated between the 9th and 15th centuries from the Norse language, it is thought to have had some influence from Gaelic. Most closely related to Icelandic in written form, Faroese pronunciation is closer to Norwegian. Prior to Faroese becoming the official language of the Faroe Islands in 1938, Danish was the official language, and to this day it is still taught in school, with approximately 5% of the Faroe population speaking Danish natively.
With so many different cultural nuances that vary across regions, the importance of understanding local communities is critical for ensuring success in whatever product or service is entering the market.
