Interesting environment! – Idlewild’s language courses are both fun and practical. First off the store is amazing. The chairs are salvaged from an old American Airlines international terminal creating an exciting setting to bring ones inner xenophile to life. Unlike typical subject-segmented bookstores, the merchandise is arranged by country: Shoppers jetting to Italy can pick up a guidebook, map, novel, translated poetry collection, cookbook, and children's book based on the region from a single shelf. The section on Spain not only displays guidebooks for Madrid, Barcelona, and Seville, but also literature set in Spain, best-selling Spanish authors, and even murder mysteries. Near the register, a wall of travel accessories handles non-literary needs, filled with international power adapters, carry-on bags, and luggage tags.
