  • Description


    Welcome to the best place to meet Korean friends and experience Korean cultures :)

    Hello~ I am Andy, a host of English Cafe in Busan, the best city in Korea. The cafe is located around Busan National University.

    I started this project for foreign travellers to meet Korean friends and learn Korean language and Korean culture,and also for Korean English learners to meet foreign friends and share ideas and opinions with them.

    Our community provides warm and lively space for Korean students and volunteers to interact at our cafe. They meet and talk in English about a variety of topics, cultures and experiences. They can also share their experiences and informations with other volunteers from all of the world.

    Volunteers can make Korean friends, learn Korean language, and experience Korean cultures. We also provide volunteers with Korean language class, twice a week, usually on Monday and Wednesday. There are around 15 ~ 20 volunteers at the same time.

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    We provide volunteers with regular Korean class and occasional indoor/outdoor activities.

    Volunteers can meet many Korean friends at our community and learn Korean cultures from them.

    Volunteers can share travel information with other volunteers and can travel Busan and other cities in Korea together.

    We also have a tradition of going out in the PNU area after class so that volunteers and students can enjoy more interaction over a meal and drinks.

  • Help


    We are looking for volunteers with following characteristics and skills:

    @ Comfortable speaking English and willing to help Korean students improve their English

    @ Interested in learning Korean language and experiencing Korean culture

    @ Love meeting new friends and interacting with them.

    @ Enjoy learning new cultures and sharing their own culture and experiences

    We aim to provide a friendly environment in which people from other countries meet Korean friends to share ideas, culture, experience and language. The cafe atmosphere is laid-back and informal as volunteers are not expected to prepare any teaching materials or formal lesson. They help Korean students improve their English with rather moderate conversation. While you are talking with Korean friends, you can help them improve their English with correcting their errors or pronunciation, suggesting good expressions, teaching vocabulary or grammar, and so on.

    Volunteers participate in cultural exchange meeting for 4 hours a day. Their schedule can be weekday afternoon, weekday evening, or weekend afternoon. (afternoon 1:00 ~ 5:00 / evening 6:00~10:00)
