Idlewild’s language courses are fun and practical and were named “Best of New York” by New York Magazine.

Our Italian classes are taught by a native of Rome in one of our beautiful bookstores in Manhattan or Brooklyn.

Please note that our Manhattan classes have moved to our new bookstore in the West Village, at 170 7th Avenue South.

You can click on the links below for course descriptions or to register.

Each lesson at Idlewild combines grammar with real-life situations, with an emphasis on conversation. A beginner lesson one week might focus on giving and asking directions, for example, while a higher-level class might have you telling a story about a recent trip.

Every week, we’ll learn and practice grammar and useful expressions, and work to enhance your vocabulary and pronunciation. You’ll be surprised how much you learn in just seven weeks!
