  • Description


    Hi there! I'm Oscar and I've been running a kind of cafe where Koreans and foreigners can meet up to learn their own culture and experience while having a conversation in English. This cafe doesn't actually sell coffee or tea but we do provide them with a great chance to make local friends for those who are from all over the world.

    The cafe is located in central Daejeon which is one of the 5 biggest cities here in Korea. It's very close to a very well-known university, KAIST which you can look around and chill. Of course there are a lot of good restaurants, cafes and shops which can make your staying here better. Moreover this city is not too crowded like Seoul which means you can chill down and learn the real Korean life style. We are also close to Seoul which you can go for weekends and it only takes less than an hour by KTX or SRT.

    At the cafe, I can guarantee you that you will have a plenty of chance to meet locals who are interested in sharing the different cultures and experiences. You can also go out with them for meals, picnic, day trip, coffee, seasonal party and so on whenever you both meet the time convenient for you.

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    As you will help them practice English and exchange the cultures and experiences, we also would like to help you stay in Korea with the dormitory type accommodation and the stuff for cooking and living there. You could learn how Koreans live and think and what real Korean society is once you get here. We also provide you with the free Korean class if you're interested and will host the seasonal parties where you could meet a lot of locals.

    As we are a kind of language cafe, it is all spoken in English which means we need someone who can speak a good English. This cafe is for Koreans who want to practice English with foreigners and build good friendships.

    We welcome whoever open mined to the diversity and various cultures. To respect each other is really important since we have all different nationalities. It doesn't really matter though you're not from English speaking counties as long as you have a good English speaking level because you will have a conversation with Koreans in English about a lot of interesting topics and share your idea with them.

    There will be 1-3 Koreans with you for 4 hrs a day and on each hour you will have a 10 minute break in between. If you talk to the same person/people for 4 hrs straight, that might be very boring so we always rotate to meet new people. We would like you to try to help them talk and practice English with you. Meanwhile you can learn how Koreans think, act, and live and also can make good friends.

    When you have your time off, you can travel around and out of city with people from the cafe together.
