We had a blast meeting people who’d been using our online lessons and books at our recent meet-up at You Are Here Cafe’s new location and here’s a little snippet from the gathering. We also asked some of these awesome people how they were learning Korean.

The conclusion: most people who had come to the meet-up said that they started with our lessons and came to live in Korea and studied at a Korean language school. Perhaps we need to open our own school in Seoul? Who’s for that idea?

If you remember from a few years ago, we announced the opening of the original "You Are Here Cafe" many years ago with our friends Simon and Martina (who are currently living in Japan), but now, the partnership has changed a lot and the coffee shop is now completely independently owned by our partner company (we’re not involved in the operation of the coffee shop in any way), and that’s actually great because they know how to run a good coffee shop and we know how to teach languages but not much about running a cafe. It’s now run by a company that sells Fair Trade products in Korea and all their desserts and drinks are freshly made in the house every day.

☕️ Location
The new location is inside the newly opened Pureugio (푸르지오) shopping mall where the new 교보문고 (Kyobo Bookstore) is at 합정역 (Hapjeong Station). You can see how to get there in this video!

☕️ Make sure you also check out their Instagram!   
http://instagram.com/youareherecafe

☕️ Language exchange meet-ups
They have regular language exchange meet-ups taking place every Monday and Friday at 7 p.m. so if you want to make friends and practice speaking in the language you are learning, simply go there and join the group!

If you're one of the millions of Korean learners who have struggled to understand exactly how the Korean particles 은, 는, 이 and 가 work, this will be a great one-stop guide for you! People who learn Korean as their mother tongue can distinguish their specific roles and various usages at a very young age, but for learners who study Korean as a foreign language, these topic/subject markers can be a bit tricky to understand.

Here's the gist of this video:
- 은 and 는 are "topic markers" and show you what the topic of the sentence is.
- 이 and 가 are "subject markers" and show you the direct subject of the verb that is being used in the sentence.
- 은/는 also shows contrast and change of scene/narrative.
- In compound sentences, such as "The movie I watched was fun.", you can see 은/는 and 이/가 being used together.

But for a better understanding, we recommend that you watch the full video (more than once if necessary) and pay close attention to the detailed examples.

You might also find our AUDIO LESSON (accompanied by a free PDF e-book) very useful:
