Elation for the Eve

Global Seoul Mates (GSM), a language exchange community based in the city of it's name, has plans to broaden their language learning services in the new year. With a release date aimed for early 2017, they will be releasing a mobile app to both tighten and expand their community.

The community within Seoul is nothing short of impressive. With Korea's ever growing foreigner community, GSM has created a medium for these people to connect and learn from locals through language exchanges.

The founders of GSM wanted to connect as many people as possible through language. They seemed to have accomplished that with a thousand attendants at their 2017 New Years Eve event, having grown exponentially from their 2016 event of a hundred attendants.
