The Experience

I've been running a kind of cafe where Koreans and foreigners can meet up to learn about their own culture and experience while having a conversation in English. This cafe doesn't actually sell coffee or tea but we do provide them with a great chance to make local friends for those who are from all over the world. As we are a kind of language cafe, it is all spoken in English which means we need someone who can speak good English. Apply! :)

Working with Kayla and Brian was such a joy and a wonderful experience! I highly recommend coming to Cheoungju if you are interested in fully immersing yourself in Korean culture. The work is very easy and the cafe is walking distance from the apartment. I met awesome people and locals. I'd 100% would come back!

I had the most incredible time at the project! Kayla and Brian are truly the most incredible and nice people who is so welcoming and truly makes you feel at home in Korea! At the cafe you get to meet so many lovely locals and help them practice their English, so if you want to make local friends this is definitely the place to come! The working hours are not that many around 3-4 a day so you'll have a lot of time to explore. I'm definitely going to miss the people of this place so much and would absolutely recommend everyone to go here you'll surely have an unforgettable experience!

I'm super grateful to Kayla and Brian for letting me be part of this experience! the project is the best place to get a full immersive Korean culture experience, every member is unique, so the conversations are super varied. Regarding the facilities, we were always provided with enough food, the apartment is super comfortable, and the location is convenient for easily moving to cities like Seoul or Busan. The work schedule is super easy going so you'll have plenty of time to sight-see the city or other activities. You'll definitely not regret coming to the project! Thanks Kayla, for everything! ^^

Please come to the project! The host Kayla and her husband Brian were so helpful and welcoming. They answered any questions I had, accommodate all my needs, and were just such caring and generous people. This was my first experience volunteering and it couldn't have been a better one. I was able to meet so many new friends from all over the world and I got to connect with the locals as well, which was great! I had plenty of time after class to explore around Korea. Kayla would even give us recommendations of fun places to explore on our free time. I didn't want to leave. Come you won't regret it
