The Experience

Help Koreans practice their English by discussing interesting topics and sharing new ideas! It is less than 18 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.

I had an amazing experience with Oscar, he is very kind and was very understanding when I had to leave early for some personal issues. The work at the host is really easy and fun, and you get to know a lot of international and Korean people. I hope I can come back next year.

I had an incredible time at the language studio the host. Oscar is a very respectful host, and the hours are quite reasonable. One of the highlights of the program is the cultural the host with the locals, which made learning about South Korean life thoroughly enjoyable. The apartment is conveniently close to the Metro, though it does take about an hour to reach the centre of Seoul. I highly recommend this program to any native English speaker looking to explore South Korea and help locals improve their conversational English.

Working at Oscar's the hostel was a super fun experience where I got to make lots of Korean and international traveler friends!! Both the accommodation and in the hostel were very welcoming spaces and I feel like I joined a family in Korea. The accommodation is very near to a subway station and town, so it was easy to access the hostel and Seoul. Also, I felt very safe in this place.

Working at the hostel was my first volunteering program and one of the best so far. Oscar is a really nice host and the hours are reasonable. You don't always work the full hours so there's time to explore Korea. The accommodation is also close to the subway station so you get to visit Seoul and other parts of Korea. I highly recommend this program, you won't regret it! I hope to come back in the future.

This volunteering was so different from what I've done before, I really like socializing with people so I got happy when I had to talk with the “students” even though sometimes was kinda hard because they don't speak english so good or they are not talkative, it requires an extra effort. The host was so nice and the atmosphere at the academy as well, the house was so nice if you like living in community, the only thing is that they don't provide full meals and that it is 1 hour far from Seoul, but I would come back !!
