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. (

All our classes in Brooklyn and most of our Manhattan classes are taught by Eduardo Pavez from Chile. Our Tuesday evening classes in Manhattan are taught by Sami Buccella from Argentina. Our Wednesday evening classes are taught by Andrés Girardo from Colombia. Our high intermediate and film classes in Manhattan are taught by Juan Vallejo from Colombia.

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

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.
