The Experience

When you are working you will come to the cafe, which is a 5 minute walk from the accommodation, and will have conversations in English with local Koreans for 4 sessions a day. Each session is for 50 minutes and 10 minute break between every session. While you work you'll be able to make a lot ( and I mean A LOT) of Korean friends who you can hang out, learn Korean culture and so on. Our place itself is very chill you'll really have some fun :)

The experience as a whole was wonderful! Volunteering at the academy and having conversations with the students was so fun I didn't even feel the time passing. The students are so nice, and I never ran out of topics to talk to them about! The shifts were flexible so I had the time to go exploring and sightseeing (and trying all kinds of korean food, of course). The dorms are spacious (although I was in a shared room with 3 other people), and the food and water were provided as agreed upon. There were a few problems with my roommates, but it was nothing a good conversation can't fix.

I am very grateful and very much appreciate all the help that Kim, Niki and Marck have given me. The dormitory is well located in a central point of Bundang. It has all the necessary services to have a cozy stay. It has easy access to public transportation. A few meters away there is a long jogging path and a number of shops, restaurants, cafes. Although the post does not offer food, they provide ramen, potatoes, rice, purified water and seasonings to prepare your own meals in the kitchen. There is a fridge, washing machine and Wifi. The working time agreement is respected.

Overall the experience was nice, met a lot of interesting people among foreigners and locals. I actually really liked to also live outside of Seoul, it was cool to experience living in a more residential area. I also liked to meet local people and get to know more about the culture. Also our apartment was very nice, it has two bathrooms, which was very convenient. The workload was okay, but sometimes a bit unorganized. There's not much contact with the host and some basic things are not really explained/you have to ask other volunteers instead of the host.

It was great getting to know the students, and all the international roommates were so kind and fun to talk to! Sometimes it might seem kind of complicated reading and remembering the schedule the first week there, but after learning to read it, it gets easier to understand. I loved the location since it's close to various stores, restaurants, and cafes. If you are an introvert like me, or you want to see more local life besides big names like Itaewon and Hongdae, this place is great! Thank you for everyone who helped me adjust, and for getting the chance to make many Korean friends!
