Seoul City will be holding a bimonthly lunchtime garden concert in English to help promote its English study cafe, according to officials.

The concert, to be held every second and fourth Wednesday of the month, kicks off with music by an Ecuadorian band and will be followed by live folk music from various countries including Russia, Mongolia, Mexico and others, officials said.

The performances will take place in the Dasan minipark located right in front of the municipal English cafe “Pine Tree.”

The cafe recently opened its doors to all citizens who wish to visit the area and communicate in English.

All exchanges, including drink orders, are made in English. City Hall employees have already been using the facility for their linguistic studies.

“We will actively add new programs to meet the demands of the users,” said a Seoul City official.

“The space is to be of service to any Seoul citizen who wishes to freely communicate and learn the English language.”

Further details may be found at or by calling the Dasan 120 Call Center.
