Sharing cultural experiences in English

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! :)

Program Details

This cafe is for Koreans who want to practice English with foreigners and build good friendships. Meanwhile, you can learn how Koreans think, act, and live and also can make good friends. When you have your time off, you can travel around and out of the city with people from the cafe together. We welcome whoever is open-minded to diversity and various cultures. Respecting each other is really important since we have all different nationalities. It doesn't really matter though you're not from an English-speaking country as long as you have a good English speaking level because you will have a conversation with Koreans in English about many interesting topics and share your idea with them.

Activities & Shift

It's normally 20 hrs a week sometimes less than that. There will be 1-3 Koreans with you for 4 hrs a day and on each hour you will have a 10-minute break in between. If you talk to the same person/people for 4 hrs straight, that might be very boring so we always rotate to meet new people.

We have a nice 2-room (each room shared with 2-4ppl) condominium apartment which has 1 bathroom, kitchen and living room. It is just 7 minutes away from the cafe on foot which means you don't have to spend your money on travelling to go and come.

We also share the laundry machine, refrigerator, air conditioner, dining table, water purifier machine, toaster, microwave, free-wifi and all the cooking utensils. We provide you with enough food and ingredients at the accommodation. Here is what we provide: rice, bread, ramen, oils, sugar, salt and almost all of the kitchen utensils.
