Looking for a way to meet English-speaking Koreans? That’s an amazing coincidence, because Koreans are looking for ways to meet foreigners – particularly English speaking foreigners. The Skype English Club is a group of Koreans whose express purpose for existence is to study and practice English. Several of their members have come to the monthly Ulsan Wine Club meetings and have made friends. You can, too, despite the fact that the sun has already set upon the Ulsan Wine Club. Coincidentially, one of the reasons the Ulsan Wine club was so much fun for me was the mixing of cultures. OK, I’ll admit the wine was good, too.
I went to SEC’s offices recently and met several members, some beginners, some more advanced in their English. After their pre-arranged study time, I joined them for a little soju and snacks and pleasant conversation. I found them to be an energetic crowd and very enthusiastic about improving their English. I expected to meet teachers, but instead was surprised to meet engineers, marketing types, students and broadcasting types – a refreshing change from the teacher-centric population most foreigners come across. A few pictures from a recent SEC party:
To broaden your own horizons and meet some interesting people who are interested in meeting you, get yourself down to one of their monthly parties for food, drinks, games and fun. Only 10k won (to cover costs) gets you in the door.
