Restaurant Outing (Cost of dinner included), and a Happy Hour (one drink included).
Our beginner class is best suited for those who are brand new to Italian, or who have studied in the past but need to brush up their skills.
By completing this course, you will learn how to introduce yourself, describe your family and friends, ask for directions, express your likes and dislikes, and even confidently order at your favorite Italian restaurant.
Our classes are uniquely designed to be both educational and social. We’ve developed the perfect balance of in-class lessons and group events to create a fun and immersive learning experience.
At City Speakeasy, we believe that conversation is the key to success. Our welcoming teachers will encourage the group to converse in Italian within the first five minutes of class.
To ensure our students get direct and dedicated instruction from our teachers, we keep our average class size under 10 students.
· 8-week, 16-hour group course
· One of our signature Immersion Events, where you’ll have the opportunity to use your newly acquired Italian skills in a real-life social situation at a fun, educational, teacher-led event.
· A post-class happy hour at a local bar, where you can get to know your classmates, and order a complimentary drink in Italian.
· All of your learning materials are included. On day one, you’ll receive your textbook and our proprietary City Speakeasy Italian Immersion Guide, as well have access to your digital Immersion Guide and "Absent & Review" Packets in your student dashboard library.
We know you are busy, so no worries if you miss a class! We make sure you don’t miss a beat by providing you with every class' "Absent & Review" Packet(found in your Student Dashboard "Library")

City Speakeasy believes that immersive social engagement is the key to learning a new language. We combine comprehensive classroom instruction with fun “Immersion Events,” so you can practice your skills in a real-world setting.
City Speakeasy classes create the perfect balance between classroom learning and social interaction. You’ll be encouraged to converse with other students in your new language regularly, and receive premier instruction from our talented teachers.
Your classmates are smart, ambitious New Yorkers - just like you! City Speakeasy keeps our average class size under ten students, so you’ll receive personalized attention from our teachers and plenty of time to converse with classmates.
If you aren’t sure which level is right for you, take an assessment quiz! Located at the top of each “Lesson” page, these quick questionnaires will help us place you into the right class.
You can view all our policies right here on our website. Just visit the "Terms, Conditions, and Policies" page!
Our teachers have joined our team from places across the globe. They are award-winning teachers, native speakers, and (of course) talented linguists. To learn more about our teachers individually, visit our teacher page.
Classes meet for two hours once a week at the New York Language Center in Midtown. Each course lasts for eight weeks, including our out-of-class “Immersion Event” at a culturally relevant bar, restaurant, or venue where students can engage and converse while showing off their new skills.
Our Immersion Events help you practice your language skills in the real-world. You’ll visit a restaurant, take a cooking class, or go to karaoke with your classmates, practicing vocabulary in a fun and engaging way.
We want you to get the most out of your class. If you’ve signed up for the wrong level, just email hello@CitySpeakeasy.com. We’ll do our best to transfer you to a new class (depending on class capacity).
After your first class, you have six business days cancel or transfer classes for a full refund - provided you return your textbook and immersion guide. (If the books are not returned, we will deduct $40 from your refund.) After that time, we are not able to offer refunds for classes.
