The Experience

This program's mainly focused on practicing speaking English and exchanging culture among local Koreans and also with volunteers from overseas. I believe that the best way to fully explore a certain country or a city is to actually bond and build a friendship with locals and that is what we locals here are excited to do!! We are trying to make an environment where everybody can join the conversation.

It was such a fun experience! I met so many international people and living in the apartment was the best part. The work is easy and fun and you learn a lot about Korean culture :)

The coliving was a great experience! It's a super great way to meet locals and other travelers, and the hours are very reasonable. I would recommend it to anyone who wants to experience Seoul and become close with others along the way.

I've stayed here 3 months. It was my first time experiencing worldpackers…I was scared how it will look like, what kind of people I will meet. Now I know that choosing the coliving was the best decision I've ever made! Hosts were amazing! Very kind and helpful. And people I've met - the other volunteers - amazing! In the end we are all the same - choosing the same thing - teaching English while learning about new culture and meeting new people. After 3 months staying there - it felt like home…☺️ will miss this place and people! I will come back soon! I highly recommend this place!!! ;-)

Being a volunteer at the coliving was an incredible experience. I felt very welcomed from the beginning, made great friends with other volunteers, and met amazing students. Being able to meet so many different people (foreigners and Koreans) while getting immersed in Korean culture truly made me feel like a part of the community. It was my first volunteering experience and I'm very grateful to the staff for being so reliable and understanding. I totally recommend this opportunity to anyone who wishes to go to Seoul. I hope I can go back in the future, thank you! :)
