Description

?What is this?
Welcome to our language exchange where you can meet other locals and foreigners. It’s a casual, friendly experience where you can practice your target language while making new friends. Imagine a bustling cafe except everyone there has come to meet each other.
 
About 30 - 70 people join every day. We offer English, Korean, Chinese, Japanese, Spanish, French and many other languages and social meetups throughout the week. You can see more at our events page. The meetup is hosted at GSM Terrace, which is a cafe and pub designed for hosting meetups around language and socializing.
 
?Who joins? 
People in their 20’s and 30’s join. You don’t have to be fluent in your target language. There are beginner - advanced tables. Typically, about 70% of guests are Korean and 30% are internationals
 
?How can I join?
After making your booking, just drop in and join! You can come alone or with friends. Coming late is okay. Let us know you’re coming here.
 
?Most common questions:
My Target language level is low. Can I still join?  No problem! All levels are welcome.
Can I come late? Yes! No problem. Come any time and leave any time. It’s very flexible.
How can I join? Just make a booking here, show up, and we’ll show you everything you need to do.
 
?What makes our language exchange different from other groups? We have...
✔️Our Own space: The space, the staff, the menu, and all of our choices are for making better meetups. We host multiple meetups every day.
✔️Staff who care: There will always be someone at the front door to greet, and guide you and take feedback, complaints or compliments ;)
✔️A matching system: Our software matches the tables with the best possible arrangement of people.
✔️Individualized content: Upon arrival, or when registering online, our system will recommend content based on your target language, level and interests.
✔️Table rotations: Every hour we rotate the tables so you can meet new people and spark up new conversations.
✔️Rewards: The more you come, the more points you earn.
✔️Standards: We only accept positive, people who make the language exchange better. If one person receives 3 separate complaints, they will be asked to leave from all our events. File a complaint here.
✔️Consistency: We are open 365 days a year and always full!
Must book by: 2:30 PM

3월 28일에 대한 리뷰를 이제야 적습니다. 그날 진짜 오랜만에 다시 나온 토요일 오후 3시타임 GSM 이었습니다. 그날 인원은 약 10명 정도 였고 저희는 소수끼리 더욱 뭉쳐서 저녁식사도 함께 하는 등 정말 좋은 시간 보냈습니다. GSM도 클린존 이라는 펫말이 걸린 것을 보고 다행이라고 생각을 했습니다. 앞으로도 지금처럼 방역에도 계속 힘써주시고 입장 시 회원들 열체크와 건강 유무 체크하는 표를 이용해서 필터를 추가하시면 좋지 않은 시국에도 저희 회원들은 걱정 없이 끈끈한 관계를 유지할 수 있을 것 같습니다. 감사합니다!

코로나 사태가 다시 안 좋게 흘러가서 그런지 토요일인데도 그리 많은 사람이 오지는 않았습니다. 특히 외국인이 더 적었던 것 같습니다. 제가 앉은 테이블은 한국인밖에 없었지만 언어교환에 오랫동안 참여한 사람들이 제법 있어 자연스럽게 영어로 대화하는 분위기를 만들어주었고, 편안하게 말을 나눌 수 있도록 이끌어주었습니다. 한국인들과 영어로 대화하는 것은 말이 너무 빠르지도 않고 대부분 우리가 알아들을 수 있는 어휘를 사용하기 때문에 영어에 접근하기가 더 쉬운 것 같습니다. 거리낌 없이 영어로 대화할 수 있어서 좋았습니다.

I thought it was fantastic. It always is. I get to meet my trainer regularly. And, especially these days there are plenty of friends to meet after practicing with my trainer~

it was my first time to join the conversation party on Saturday, I met a lot of international people and it was a great time that many people were speaking Korean and loving Korean culture. I was impressed that many foreigners were trying to speak Korean to me and it was nice that they understood my speaking English too. I hope that I will join this conversation again next time! Thank you so much! and, the host David! he was so sweet and kind person! I already noticed that he sincerely cared to people and supported to visitors lovely :)

시간이 괜찮으시고 영어에 관심있으시다면 추천 드립니다! 처음 무료 트라이얼 수업 하고 나서 너무 만족감에 저도 모르게 결..제를 하게되었어요 저는 문장도, 단어도 아예 몰라서 멍 하니 시간을 보낼 줄 알았는데 너무 너무 의미있는 시간이었습니다!! 정말 초보인 분들도 이곳을 오시면 정말 좋으실겁니다! 데이빗선생님! 정말 좋았어요, 고은선생님도 너무 잘 가르쳐주셔서 좋았어요!
