Language exchange cafe in Bucheon city 10mins distance to Seoul in Korea

Hi there!
I"m Oscar and I"ve been running a kind of cafe where Koreans and foreigners can meet up to learn about their own culture and experience while having a conversation in English. This cafe doesn't actually sell coffee or tea but we do provide them with a great chance to make local friends for those who are from all over the world. As we are a kind of language cafe, it is all spoken in English which means we need someone who can speak good English. This cafe is for Koreans who want to practice English with foreigners and build good friendships. We welcome whoever is open-minded to the diversity and various cultures. Respecting each other is really important since we have all different nationalities. It doesn't really matter though you're not from English-speaking countries as long as you have a good English speaking level because you will have a conversation with Koreans in English about many interesting topics and share your idea with them. It's normally 18 hrs a week sometimes less than that. There will be 1-3 Koreans with you for maximum 4 hrs a day and on each hour you will have a 10-minute break in between. If you talk to the same person/people for 4 hrs straight, that might be very boring so we always rotate to meet new people. We would like you to try to help them talk and practice English with you. Meanwhile, you can learn how Koreans think, act, and live and also can make good friends. When you have your time off, you can travel around and out of the city with people from the cafe together.

The cafe is located in central Bucheon which is just next to west Seoul here in Korea. It"s very close to a very well-known Department store LOTTE which you can look around and chill. Of course there are a lot of good restaurants, cafes and shops which can make your staying here better. Moreover this city is crowded like Seoul which means there are many things and chances you can look around and learn the real Korean city life style.

We are also close just 10~15mins distance to Seoul where you can go by subway whenever you want and it only takes around half an hour by bus from Incheon airport.

At the cafe, I can guarantee you that you will have a plenty of chance to meet locals who are interested in sharing the different cultures and experiences. You can also go out with them for meals, picnic, day trip, coffee, seasonal party and so on whenever you both meet the time convenient for you.

《Accommodation》
We have a nice 2 room condominium apartment which has 1 bathroom, kitchen and the living room.
I'm sure you guys would be satisfied with it. It is just 3~4minutes away from the cafe on foot which means you don"t have to spend your money for travelling to go and come.

It's a condominium including nice city view.
Everything is shared in the accommodation including 2 rooms (2-4 ppl), bathrooms, kitchen and the living room. In there, we also share the laundry machine, refrigerator, air condition, dining table, water purifier machine, toaster, microwave, hsir dryer, free-wifi and all the cooking utensils. We provide you with enough food and ingredients at the accommodation. Here are what we provide: rice, bread, ramen, eggs, oils, sugar, salt and almost all of the kitchen utensils.

As we are a kind of language cafe, it is all spoken in English, so we need someone who can speak good English. This cafe is for Koreans who want to practice English with foreigners and build good friendships. We welcome whoever is open mined to the diversity and various cultures. Respecting each other is really important since we all have different nationalities. It doesn't really matter though you're not from English-speaking countries as long as you have a good English speaking level because you will have a conversation with Koreans in English about a lot of interesting topics and share your idea with them. Our staffs including me care always you guys and listen to your voices :) I'll try to adapt your guys' needs!

In general the volunteer position at this studio was very good, the students were very friendly and communicative, the flat is near the studio and it's relatively easy access to Seoul (approximately 1h by subway), the shifts are during the evening, which allowed me to explore everything during the day.

I would recommend this volunteer position for anyone who likes to explore during the day, attention that the food provided is just ramen and a few other ingredients, the surroundings are filled with life, restaurants and everything.

This cafe is an excellent way to see Seoul and speak with locals. As other reviews point out it is about an hour to the centre and the food provided is just basic ramen and a few other essentials. Bucheon itself is a nice place to live as there are enough restaurants and things to do there. The work is easy and hours sometimes end up being less than 4 hours a day so I would recommend this to anyone who wants to explore Seoul.

Overall I had a really good time at the Language studio and meet many locals and also other volunteers. As many others already said the distance to Seoul is not to be underestimated but it’s usually easy to get there!

This is a really good experience to meet locals and understand their culture. I really enjoyed meeting new people and working with the other volunteers. On the other side, the accommodation is too small for the number of volunteers.

I enjoined my stay in Bucheon and work at the language cafe, the best part of it was getting to know local people and the Korean culture from various aspects. The students were very welcoming and friendly. I would definitely repeat this experience 😍.
