What Is a Language Exchange?


Welcome to our language exchange, where you’ll get the chance to meet natives and other foreigners who are in the same situation as you. Our language exchange sessions are casual, friendly experiences where you’ll be able to practice your target language while making new friends at the same time. It’s nothing at all like a typical classroom experience — it’s more like a bustling café, full of people who have come from all walks of life in order to spend time together and build a connection with each other.


About 30 to 70 people join our language exchanges every single day, which means that the pool of potential new friends you could make is expanding all the time. We’re proud to be able to offer exchanges in a number of different languages, including English, Korean, Chinese, Japanese, Spanish, and French, to mention just a few of our most popular options. 


Our social meet-ups take place throughout the week, meaning that no matter how busy your schedule is, you’ll be able to find a time that suits you. You can find more information about the different times our meet-ups are held on our events page, located here. The meet-up itself is hosted at GSM Terrace, which is a café and pub that has been designed to facilitate language-based social events. Check out our gallery to see just how much fun the participants in our language meet-ups end up having.


Who Takes Part?



The most popular age group for participants in our language meet-ups are people in their 20s and 30s. You don’t have to be fluent in your target language; as a matter of fact, we offer dedicated tables according to your level, running the gamut from beginner right the way through to advanced. 


Typically, about 70% of our guests are native Koreans, with the remaining 30% being made up of internationals in the same situation as you. This has turned out to be the perfect mix for introducing foreigners to the way social life takes place in Korea. You’ll get the opportunity to meet friendly faces from all over the world in a straightforward, stress-free environment. After all, who doesn’t like hanging out with their friends for a cup of coffee or a beer? 


How Can I Join?


Taking part in our language exchange meet-ups couldn’t be easier. All you need to do is figure out a time that suits you, make your booking, and drop in on the event. There’s no lengthy sign-up process required, and you don’t need to pass any kind of test. It’s as simple as turning up with a smile on your face.


Of course, plenty of people feel apprehensive about going to a social event on their own, particularly if they don’t know anybody else there. That’s why we make a point of allowing people to come along to our meet-ups with their friends. As the saying goes, the more the merrier! If you invite your friends from this link, you can both get 5,000krw. Coming late is not a problem, you’ll just be missing out.





I’m not great at my target language yet. Can I still come?


Absolutely! All levels are welcome, and we have dedicated tables for each level, meaning that you’ll only be matched up with people who are in the same boat as you are.


Can I come late? 


Yes, you can. Come at any time and leave at any time — it’s an informal event, so there’s no problem with dropping in and out as you see fit.


How can I join? 

All you need to do is make a booking here and then turn up. We’ll walk you through everything else you need to do on the day.


What Makes Our Language Exchange Special?


There are a few important aspects that make our language exchange meet-ups different from the rest. Here are some of the key things we offer that set us apart:


※Our Own Space: GSM Terrace is specifically for our meetups, so we’re able to host multiple meet-ups every day in our own dedicated location. The space itself, the staff, the menu — everything has been designed with the goal of creating the perfect language meet-up in mind.


※Staff Who Care: Our friendly team of staff love inviting new people into the fold. There will always be somebody at the front door ready to greet you and introduce you to the event, as well as somebody who is willing to listen to any feedback you may have.


※Sophisticated Matching System: Our specially designed matching software helps to ensure that you’ll only end up with the very best people for your unique situation.


※Personalized Content: Based on your target language, level, and interests, our system will recommend content tailor-made for you. This will either happen upon arrival, or when you’re registering online.


※Table Rotations: We rotate our tables every single hour, so that you’ll be exposed to as many new people as possible. After all, it’s all about making connections.


※Rewards: The more you come to our events, the more points you’ll earn, which can be exchanged for exciting rewards.


※Standards: We only accept positive people who make the language exchange a better experience for everybody. If one person receives 3 separate complaints, they will be asked to withdraw from all our events.  If you had a bad experience, after each event you'll be given the chance to make yourself heard.


※Consistency: We’re open 365 days a year, and we’re always full.

카논짱 진행 좋아요


처음으로 가보는 일본어 밋업 자리여서 익숙치 않고 많이 어색했지만 친절하게 말 걸어주시는 카논상 덕분에 즐거웠습니다. 다만 인원이 너무 많은데 한 자리에 모아놓다 보니 테이블도 엄청나게 길어져서 소통이 너무 불편했습니다.


일본어를 못하지만 재밌었어요~~


항상 텐션 높아서 좋아요

Everyone was very kind and it was a good chance to practice speaking Japanese while having a nice conversation.


카논상이 한국을 떠나는 날이라 슬펐어요 ㅠㅠ
