1. ‘GenieTalk’ app

GenieTalk is a great translation app for travelers. You can speak or type-in English text, then this cute app will translate your text into Korean. You just need to show your mobile screen to Koreans to communicate with them. We’ve tested it few times and its translation was quite accurate especially simple conversation which you will need during your trip (it was better performance than other programs which we had tried).

Go to Android or Apple Appstore and search ‘GenieTalk’. It will be your great assistant in Korea!

2. ‘1330’ Call center
