Thank you for your interest in our Cafe and what we are doing here in Busan!

We operate an International Language exchange café for travelers in Kyungsung-dae university district in the city of Busan. This is one of the liveliest districts in the city, nestled amongst the two biggest universities with convenient subway access to all over the city and our cafe only being 2 minutes on foot from the station 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.

You need to be able to speak English confidently because your primary duty will be to facilitate English conversation with café members. You will have access to many games at the café to assist you with this activity but you will be surprised at how easily you can talk with the members as they have many questions for you.

You can also share your culture and language and will also have the opportunity to learn about Korean culture through conversations with our members.

What We Expect when visiting our cafe
• Talking with Korean members of our cafe for 3/4 hours a day; we have no curriculum so you need to be a very social person who is good at communicating and able to change their speech pattern to fit the customer. Sometimes you should talk slower and more clearly than other times.
• Easy to get along with others and live in close quarters with others; good personal hygiene is a must for this job as you will be talking with people everyday and living with many others.
