Want to open up a study room
« on: February 10, 2020, 06:43:44 pm »
Hey guys. So I have been here in Korea for 5 years and have f6 visa. I'm seriously considering taking the study room plunge and I could use some feedback from people who have done similar things. I don't really want to do it out of my house because I feel weird about having random kids in my personal space so I don't mind spending 600k - 1 million won a month for a moderately sized place with a semi decent location. ( Please note I don't live in Seoul or a super expensive area ) .  I have good idea how to develop a decent plan for the students. I looked at a few places today and one was right across the street from a middle and elementary school. My inital thought is to go ahead and take the hit to my finances and go with a place that has a good location so I don't have to worry about logistics too  I could use any feedback or advice from someone who has went down this route. Thanks!

I am not ready for this step, but it's something I would want to look into in the future as I am also on an F6, been here for 5 years, and needing a change with more flexibility and being my own boss.

From what I've read it's a good opportunity if you advertise it and have a good location.

I believe Tony Teacher who used to post here has done this.  I think if you have it in a business premises then it's not actually a 'kongboobang' He posted this on here...

You can also visit a website I created that share some of my experiences when I was running my English Gyosoopso. It's like a study room but in a commercial space. There are blog posts and podcasts that you can access if you are interested. The website is

May be worth checking with him...

Yeah I'm thinking of buying his program on his site. I am actually thinking of opening a gyosoopso and not study room because it would involve renting a commercial space.
