In this fun and innovative conversation class for advanced speakers, students watch Spanish-language movies at home (mostly on Netflix and Kanopy) and we discuss them in class. The movies will be a mix of classic and contemporary (and different from the ones viewed in previous sessions), from different Spanish-speaking countries.
Watching original-language movies is a great way to build your understanding and speaking of colloquial Spanish. Every week, we'll talk about the plots and the cultural context, and the instructor will align this discussion with the review of grammar, vocabulary and idiomatic expressions.
This class is conducted entirely in Spanish, and is intended for students who know the grammar pretty well and can speak and understand at a fairly high level, even if they make some mistakes.
Note: Students are responsible for viewing the films on their own before class. All the films are available through Netflix, Amazon or Kanopy streaming. Subscribing to these online services is easy and inexpensive.
This course is available for "remote" learning and will be available to anyone with access to an internet device with a microphone (this includes most models of computers, tablets). Classes will take place with a "Live" instructor at the date/times listed below.
Upon registration, the instructor will send along additional information about how to log-on and participate in the class.

Idlewild Books was founded in 2008 by David Del Vecchio, a former United Nations press officer. The name Idlewild was taken from the original name for New York International Airport, which was renamed JFK in December 1963. We even have some stained glass and chairs from the original Idlewild Airport...
This school has been carefully vetted by CourseHorse and is a verified NYC educator.
