  • Description


    Hi, my name is Danny. I graduated high school in LA and I’ve been living in Korea for about 2 years.

    I’ve seen a lot of Koreans who want to communicate in English with foreigners getting frustrated because they don’t know how and where they can find such opportunities in Korea.

    Almost all schools and academies in Korea focus their teaching only on Reading, Listening and Grammar. Because of this most Koreans shy away or get nervous when it comes to holding an actual conversation with a foreigner.

    I created this cafe hoping to break this rigid trend in learning English by having real conversation and interactions with people from different countries.

    If you decide to join us, it will be a great opportunity for you as well.
    The best way to enjoy and truly experience the country you’ve decided to go to is by hanging out and becoming friends with the locals.

    By joining us, you can naturally become friends with our Korean members and travel around Seoul together while they can practice their English and learn about your culture.

    I believe this is the perfect opportunity for you to build friendship and experience new things here in Korea.

    I will also organize group events from time to time such as camping or hiking with all the foreigners and Korean members together so that all of us can become closer

    If you want to explore Seoul and make local friends, apply to our cafe!

    Minimum wage in Korea every hour you work as long as you have the proper visa.

    Not only you can talk in Korean with them and practice your Korean, you can also earn minimum wage in Korea every hour you work as long as you have the proper visa.

    We will help the workawayers with Korean if they want to learn and improve Korean.
