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: 6:30 PM

비록 요즘 상황은 안 좋지만 그래도 소수의 인원끼리 서로 영어를 연습하며 서로 외롭지 않고 즐거운 시간을 보낼 수 있어서 참 좋았습니다. 요즘 상황이 안좋은 만큼 좀 더 안전하게 이용하기 위해 입장시 다른 곳처럼 열체크 기계로 회원들 체크 후 입장하는 것도 한번 고려해 보시면 저희가 좀 더 안전하게 사용할 수 있지 않을까 봅니다! 그래도 클린존으로 지정되어서 참 다행이라고 느꼈습니다! 감사합니다!

Yesterday was really good! I really enjoyed yesterday's meet up! Thesedays, there are many people come to GSM and I can have more chance to meet good people and meet new friends as well! I met new friend yesterday, and we had good talk and we already had a plan to come to the GSM for Saturday as well! For many reasons, I can feel more happy to come to the GSM than before :)

제가 앉은 테이블엔 한국인 비율이 더 컸는데(5:1 정도) 분위기 자체가 자연스럽게 영어로 대화할 수 있는 분위기였고 다들 영어를 사용할 수 있는 공간을 찾아 온 것이다 보니 그런 노력을 해서, 한국인끼리 영어로 대화하는 데에 거리낌이 없었습니다. 또, 자리에 함께 한 외국인을 위해 한국어로 대화를 하기도 하는 등 적절한 언어교환이 이루어 진 것 같아 좋았습니다.

I used to go there on Thursday during weekdays before. Even about three weeks ago, there were very few people on Thursday, so I didn't go there for a while! And I started to go there on Thursday again from now! And I could meet new good people, thanks to meet people, I could enjoy my life more there!

제가 만난 학생은 영어를 꽤 잘하셔서 한국어 프리토킹을 즐겼어요 :) 물론 당연히 가져온 한국어 프린터물로 공부도 많이 했구요. 프리토킹 시 학생이 못알아 듣거나 잘 모르는 표현들 위주로 다시 복습하는 시간도 가졌답니다 ;)
