Idlewild offers language classes in Manhattan (617 Hudson St), Brooklyn (249 Warren St) and online (via Zoom).

The name Idlewild was taken from the original name for New York International Airport, which was renamed JFK in December 1963.

We offer 7-week language classes in French, Spanish, Italian, Portuguese and German.
