    Welcome to our language café!
    About US

    We operate an International Language exchange café in Kyungsung-dae district in the city of Busan. This is one of the liveliest districts in the city, nestled amongst several universities with convenient subway access and only 15 minutes away from the beach.

    Our goal is to provide a friendly and open-minded environment where local students and residents can practice English conversation, cultural and foreign language exchanges, have fun, and make friends through conversation, games, and events at our café.

    • Some volunteers help in the morning and have a reduced shift time in the Cafe; because of this they then clean the house where they live after they finish work to complete their shift.

  • What else ...

    What else ...

    Busan is an amazing city to visit and live in and made even better when staying in the Cafe as the Korean customers in our cafe are always taking volunteers out to see things in the city or surrounding countryside.

    Some of our volunteers have attended customers weddings, graduations, many birthday parties and other things that your average tourist would never have the chance to experience.

    Busan has many beautiful beaches and in summer it's a great way to spend the day and often we do go down as a big group to the beach and play games, drink and laugh together.

    If you like shopping then Korea is an amazing country to visit with a range of cheap and expensive goods; I personally love shopping in the Nampo markets of Busan where you can find all kinds of boutique shops selling unique clothes for a very competitive price. Koreans really love fashion and make up and there are all kinds of styles available here in Busan.

    Seoul isn't very far away and can be reached by KTX in 3 hours or bus in 5 hours and so it is definitely possible to travel to Seoul on your weekend if you want to see the famed big city; smaller cities are also nearby such as Ulsan and Daegu if you want to see what they have to offer.

    Overall Korea is a great place to spend time and experience the culture. Korean people love to eat out and there are so many restaurants everywhere and great bars. Drinking is very cheap here and so many volunteers take advantage of this opportunity every night by partying but don't shy away if you aren't the partier as theres many temples and mountains to see or noraebangs to sing your heart out in.
