  • Description


    Hello! My name is Jeremy and we are a community mainly focused on practicing speaking English and exchanging culture among local Koreans and also with volunteers from overseas.
    I believe that the best way to fully explore a certain country or a city is to actually bond and build friendship with local's and that is what we locals here are excited to do!
    Come and join our community and let us help you to have an amazing experience in our great city Seoul!

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    The cafe itself will have a lot of locals coming and going each day and because of that, you will have numerous opportunities to learn about Korean culture and to make local Korean friends (also fellow travelers of course).
    And since the cafe is located in Jongno; in the center of the city it'll be very convenient for you to travel through the city!

  • Help


    Since our cafe's main purpose is to help local Koreans having opportunities in practicing their English speaking skills, fluency for English is quite important for us.
    We will ask you to come to the cafe and help for 4 hours, 5 days a week.
    And since most of the local's would be beginners, it'll take time for them to actually speak out what they're trying to express, we would ask volunteers to maintain patience and be willing to help them with their English
    If you are not a native-English speaker, We would very much appreciate if you could tell us any English-related score or certificate you have.
    There will be time an hour lunch session. once a week
