Program Details

Travelers will meet a lot of Koreans (believe me, you will meet at least 100 Koreans) during the stay and will live with more than 5 foreigners from all around the world. After the program, travelers can have dinner together or hang out with Koreans they meet during sessions as well as their new foreign house mates. If you have a good conversation and make a Korean friend (seriously, it is so easy) they could be your travel guide on your days and time off. Since you will meet people with tons of different backgrounds, jobs and characters you will learn what real Korea is. Moreover, people who will stay with you in the accommodation are also looking for new experiences just like you, so you will have a very high chance of making good friends from all other countries as you will be spending so much time with them.


Activities & Shift

When you are working you will come to the cafe, which is a 5 minute walk from the accommodation that we provide, and will talk to Koreans in English.
You will be assigned to a table and talk to 1 to 3 Koreans 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.
Our focus is to help improve people’s conversational English level, but we also help people with lower levels of English.
Should you wish to have an extra day off, we can always arrange it by some compensations such as extra shifts some other week or helping some other matters for our cafe.
You will meet different groups of people for each session.

English fluency is vital, so before we confirm your stay an English interview could be asked.


Rules

Our staffs and the place itself is very chill, laid back so there's not so much of a strict policy but one thing that we are strict about is punctuality.
If you could just show up on time, there won't be anything else to worry about :)
