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!

I like to come here, GSM. I can feel more free and meet lots of people from various nationalities and divers cultural backgrounds. It is so fun to have conversation and share ideas with people. Last time I was there. I saw other meetups going on in the lounge such as economy invests and Spain language learning. I can see the this club is growing which is nice to see too.

It was an amazing, and lovely and great chance that I had a lot of conversations with lots of people! I was impressed that foreigners tried to speak Korean to me, I hope to speak Korean with foreigners as much as I have chances! and I was so glad that I interacted with them in English too! I hope to visit there next time!

It is very helpful to me. I tried to improve my english speaking skill, but it’s not easy. Only conversation can help me speak English. Thanks. Gsm.

I had the best Sunday's meetup yesterday! There were good people and I had really good time with them! Actually, Saturday was really good to have time there too! Usually, I couldn't enjoy much on Sunday than Saturday's meetup! But yesterday, I enjoyed much than Saturday! It was first time in my 1 and a half years experience in the GSM!

Last weekend's GSM was great! Especially Saturday's one was the best! And yesterday's GSM was also good enough as well! For me, I may attend on Thursday night, and then hopefully I could enjoy it!

It’s a nice setup to meet people and practice different languages. I really like the idea of switching seats, it helps to meet more people and share cultural thoughts in a broader extent and also makes the setup more exciting. However, somehow the beginners tend to have less chance to involve in a conversation.

It was great time to meet people and to learn English. I hope the next time is also good time for me.
