We are a grassroots movement in the Suwon area. What started off as a couple of friends at a coffee shop has turned into a vision for something refreshing where members meet, communally teach/learn among friends (new and old) in a dedicated one-on-one setting. You learn what you want to with the help of a native speaker.
You can also find us on Facebook at:
Are you interested in language exchange?
The crew at "별밤"POP graciously welcomes you to join us every Tuesday night for language exchange from 8:30 PM- 10:10 PM.
For 5,000w, you get a drink and 90 minutes of quality exchange time with a native speaker.
BEGINNERS TO ADVANCED ARE WELCOME!
The idea is simple: We want to bring together a community of people interested in improving their language skills. If you are interested, this is how we do it.
*We start from 8:30 PM and partner for 90 minutesof one-on-one exchange.
* You are matched with someone of the appropriate experience level to best assist you in your language learning endeavors. (Beginner or Advanced, there is sure to be someone willing to help.)
*For 45 minutes a native English speaker exchanges with a native Korean speaker. After 45 minutes, the tables turn and the student becomes the teacher.
*You pick the material that you would like to cover.
*If you need assistance finding learning materials, we will do our best to suggest materials.
The address is: 1042-9 5th Floor, Ingye-dong, Paldal-gu, Suwon si, Gyeonggi-do, 442-834.

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
