Program Details

When you are working you will come to the cafe, which is 1 minute walk from the accommodation, and will talk with Koreans in English. You will be assigned to one table and talk to 1 to 3 Korean for 4 sessions. Each session is 50 minutes long and there is a 10 minute break between sessions. Your schedule will be 4 sessions each day and 5 days a week. You will meet different groups of people for each session. Our focus is to help improve people’s conversational English level, but we also help people with lower levels of English.
