The Experience

Help Koreans practice their English by discussing interesting topics and sharing new ideas! It is less than 15 hours per week. 1 to 3 Koreans per group for less than 4 hours per day, with a 10-minute break in between. It could be very boring to talk to the same person or people for 4 hours straight, so we always rotate to meet new people. We'd like you to try to help them communicate and practise English with them.

This the hostel 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. the hostel 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.

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.

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 the hostel and work at the hostel, 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 😍.
