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

It's a great opportunity to meet people from both Korea and other countries. Some nights have more people than others, but I recommend it.

언어 교환 분위기가 매우 좋습니다. 친구들은 처음 뵙아도 영어로 취미, 생활 등을 친절하게 얘기할 수 있습니다. 제가 영어 교환을 참가했으니 교류 기법도 많이 받아들였습니다. 정말 재미있습니다.

코로나때문에 사람이 적어서 아쉬운 부분이 많았지만서도 스페인어그룹에서는 화기애애한 분위기가 연출되어 "다음에 또 와야지" 라는 수줍은 마음으로 귀가 하였습니다. 다음주에는 듀올링고랑 스페인어교재로 미리 예습하여 일취월장한 모습으로 원어민 튜터님을 깜짝 놀라게 할 생각입니다. ^,. ^;
