Learn a Language at Bryant Park and Herald Square

Free beginner classes by inlingua are now offered in both districts.

Planning a trip this year? Whether you’re going to Brazil for business, France for vacances, or Italy to study art, Bryant Park Language Classes can help you get a leg up on making introductions and ordering in restaurants.

This year, we’re offering classes in Brazilian Portuguese, French, and Italian, taught by skilled instructors from inlingua. All classes are stand-alone, not cumulative, so you can join anytime, but we ask that you attend only one class in each language. Pre-registration is required and opens one week before the class date. Email to reserve your spot. If you haven’t pre-registered, drop by and see if there’s room. Each class is limited to 20 students.

The classes meet Mondays, 11:45am- 12:30pm, beginning May 1, on the Upper Terrace across from Bryant Park Cafe. To find your session, consult the entire schedule on our website.

If you work on 34th Street and want to learn a bit of Brazilian Portuguese or French, you’re in luck as well. Language Classes, also presented by inlingua, begin at Herald Square Park on Thursday, May 4 with a Brazilian Portuguese session. The 45-minute classes begin at 11:45pm, and will alternate between the two languages every week for nine weeks, up to the final Brazilian Portuguese class on June 29. Register for your class at
