What is Lean Coffee?
Lean Coffee Speaking Club is the only speaking club that puts you in the driver's seat. It's you who picks the topics and discusses them, not the teacher.
Lean Coffee is a structured meeting with a flexible agenda.
It facilitates interesting and effective discussions because the discussion topics are generated by the participants themselves.

We meet online and welcome people of all backgrounds and professions. The only participation requirement is that you have to be at least A2 (pre-intermediate) level English.
About the Club
Participants number
8 people per group
Every Friday, 6:30-8:00 pm (GMT+3)
How it works
Step 1
A few hours prior to the start, we create a Zoom room for you, your peers and mentor.
Step 2
Every participant suggests TWO topics for the common chat. The group then votes on the most interesting ones.
Step 3
The participants split into two groups. People in the first group take turns expressing their thoughts on the first topic. The discussion lasts 5-10 minutes.
Step 4
The second group gives feedback to the first group, then they swap roles.
Step 5
At the end of the meeting, the mentor gives feedback and corrects some errors they observed.
Why pick Lean Coffee Club?
90 minutes of speaking practice
You speak most of the time while the mentor acts as a facilitator. The format enables even the most introverted participant to speak as much as the other attendees.
You pick the topics
We don't force our participants into talking about global warming and cooking. During 90 minutes, you will pick and discuss up to 5 tech and non-tech related topics.
Error correction
At the end of the meeting the mentor will go over errors and mistakes so that you keep improving your English every time.
It's as convenient as it gets. All you need to participate is Internet access, and a laptop (or a phone).
All done in the comfort of your home
Develop your communication skills
During 90 minutes, you will improve not only your speaking, but also build up other important soft skills

How to end a conversation gracefully
