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, 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!

I really liked my time here. Oscar and the customers are friendly, the language studio is nice and the accommodation is comfortable.
Just notice that the food only contains eggs, ramen, rice and bread. Moreover if you want to go into Seoul you will need at least 50 minutes.
Still I can recommend to come here:)

Great experience, definetly recommend!
The Studio has been a warm and familiar place during my stay. The job is not too hard, Sunday plus a day of your choice off and most of the times you will not do 4 full hours a day.
Oscar tries his best to make you feel comfortable and he provides Ramyeon, rice, eggs and bread (more than most hosts give here in South Korea).
The apartment is a cozy place, well equipped with rice cooker, microwave, little oven and water filter.
I met great people, Koreans and internationals, and built some long lasting friendships.
Forever grateful.
Thank you.

This place is the best one so far. I love every single person in here. The accommodation is 5 min by walking from the studio. And it provides basic foods (rice, ramen, eggs, breads). The accommodation is sooo good, warm and cozy. And it’s not that far away from Seoul too, there’s a subway station( Line7) 2min by walking distance. Thank you for everyone who made my stay unforgettable! Definitely want to come here again :)

Being around a city-esque town that is near to the Seoul proved to give me a good insight about the South Korean culture and people. Moreover, it was great making friends with people who visit the studio and get to understand the Korean mindset.

Furthermore, let me get to accommodation - it’s a cozy place that you can actually call home. It’s perfect, like five minutes from the studio and two minutes from a subway station. Really a hearty thanks to Oscar for taking care of me from the day I stepped in Korea and beyond. And the co-workers I met were really good.
