What we're about

This is a group for anyone interested in studying Korean and/or eating delicious Korean food!!! Also we want lots of native Koreans to attend, we wont be able to survive without your help in your amazing language!!!:).

From absolute beginners to advanced level speakers of the Korean language are welcome:). I started this group because I want to learn Korean and I thought this would be a great way to meet Korean people and like minded people:) Actually currently (26th of April, 2016) i know ONLY understand less than 10 words of Korean:( BUT....from 1st of June I will study Korean hard....very hard:) Its my challenge to learn Korean in 6 months!!!!! come and join me in this challenge:)

Why you should join this group? Cause you will be able to learn Korean in a relaxed environment with friendly attendees. A place where you will have fun and learn. If your interested in the food...we will host my Korean food parties...and we know Korean`s cook some of the tastiest food in the world!! Id like a Bulgogi burger right now:P

Thanks everyone

Dance superstar☆ If you want to start, learn or maintain a language, ...come along...YOU CAN BE AN ABSOLUTE BEGINNER, thats fine:) We are all here to learn.... AND teach. So.................regarding this Multilingual Exchange Gathering [MAIN IDEA] " THE 10 MINUTE SWITCH " participants will be given stickers showing which language(s) they wish to practice or even just try for the evening. Once we're ready to start, everyone pairs up with anyone with at least one matching sticker. They're given 10 minutes to chat in that language before the bell rings and they move onto a different partner, again, with a person who speaks or wants to learn that particular language. We will play some fun and interesting games, and end with a free-for-all once the ice is well and truly broken. [メインアイデア]" THE 10 MINUTE SWITCH " ①参加者の方は、まず自分の話したい言語(複数可)を書いたシールを胸に張って頂きます。皆さんの準備が出来たら、自分が話したい言語と一致する最低一人か二人とペアになってもらいます。ある程度の時間がたった後にベルを鳴らすので、再び自分と同じシールを貼っている別の人を探してパートナー交代、というのが簡単な流れです。 ②また、途中でいくつかの言語にフォーカスしたサイドゲームも行い、のちフリータイムに進む予定です☆彡皆さんどうぞお楽しみに^^ GOAL Everyone gets to practice all their target languages, 1-on-1, with a bunch of different people including native speakers. [目標] 全ての参加者が、自分の話したい言語を1対1(か1対2)で色んな人と話せること、その中に出来ればネイティブスピーカーがいることを目標にしています^^ TARGET LANGUAGES: 3 Asian: Japanese/Chinese/Korean 3 European: English/French/Spanish 🌟 Language Support Staff Team🌟 1.
