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

Our Spanish classes are taught by native speakers in one of our beautiful bookstores.

In Manhattan, our Tuesday and Wednesday evening classes and Friday classes are taught by Juan Vallejo from Colombia.

Our Monday and Thursday classes and our Wednesday daytime classes in Manhattan, and all our Brooklyn classes, are taught by Eduardo Pavez from Chile.

Both are excellent teachers, with several years of experience teaching Spanish in New York.

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

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

Each lesson at Idlewild combines grammar and conversation and applies them to real-life situations. For example, a beginner lesson might focus on the grammar and vocabulary needed to order in a restaurant, while an intermediate class might have students discussing what they would do if they won the lottery.

Each week, we’ll learn and review colloquial expressions and pronunciation as well as grammar and vocabulary. Students also get plenty of speaking practice each week by participating in short conversations and class exercises.

You can also check our blog for additional language-learning tips, including great movies, TV shows and websites for Spanish learners.
