The event on August 21 was wonderful and people wanted to meet again. It was a nice event for people attending their first meetup, and people made new friends and learned new words, idioms, and more.

We'll get together and study, meet potential language exchange partners, and have a great time. Korean speakers and English speakers and people who speak both languages! We will have a room inside. Here is a picture from yesterday's meetup:



Jason (member) suggested this kind of meetup, and many people agreed with him: "As with my meetup which is also a language study meetup, I am wondering if this meetup does any English/Korean study. If not, it might be nice to have a recurring language study group for those of us interested in practicing speaking in Korean and English."

Let's get together and help each other. Some topics will be news events, movies, and culture.

We are using people's suggestions to improve this event. The format this week will be updated for easier language exchange and coaching.


The nearest metro station is Clarendon (Orange line). There is parking in the nearby streets, esp. convenient is the little loop of N. Fairfax Drive to the west of the coffee shop (to the left of the "A" in the map) - Map Link


Standard Details: There is no cost to attend. We welcome first-time attendees! You can arrive late - its okay. The dress code is casual (but suits and dresses are fine, too!). We will post photos and notes after the event.


Preparation: Just bring yourself, and your passion to learn.

Here are some videos (new... different from last week's videos) - visit the event page here to see the videos.

ESL lesson (with hangul/Korean): Seashore & swimming


English Lesson video - common expressions - a nice video with expressions we really use in America (get the ball rolling, take it easy, sleep on it, I'm broke, sharp, back of my hand, in ages, and more):

Korean Lessons


* Korean Word Relay - interesting way to learn words and phrases. Did you know "button" is the same pronunciation in Korean and English? And that "remote control" in Korean is similar but shorter - pronounced "remote-con"?:

* Introducing oneself in Korean - the hanguk mal pronunciation starts at around 4 minutes in this video:
