Coffee with Friends


Chat Over Coffee


A topic is selected for each ‘session’. Please note: this is a far more informal way of doing things, as opposed to  the traditional classroom setting.  Participants do a little of their own research ahead of class.  Then, we arrange a meeting time (most likely conducted via Zoom, Telegram or Facebook). 

The elected leader directs and manages discussions, but this role can be conducted by anyone willing to take on the responsibility… We may want to include supplementary exercises and worksheets that link to the topic of discussion.  The group leader will need to find hard copies of the original materials (e.g. pdf, movie links etc.)

We choose interesting and relevant topics to discuss, which include subjects such as:

  • Aliens

  • Art

  • Censorship

  • Depression

  • Family

  • Money

  • Movies

  • Prison

  • Superheroes

  • War

In addition to this, we for those who would like to attend these sessions on a more long-term basis, we select a book with its accompanying movie to read, watch and discuss, and do various smaller activities based around the specific book, movie, play, song, band, artist, TV programme etc.

Suggestions might include materials, such as:

  • Fight Club by Chuck Palahniuk (also the movie)

  • Matilda by Roald Dahl (also the movie)

  • Rita Hayworth & The Shawshank Redemption by Stephen King (also the movie)

  • A New Word by Eckhart Tolle

  • Spring Awakening by Frank Wedekind

Terms & Conditions

Everybody from all walks of life are welcome to attend.  Discussions can be as light-hearted or serious as deemed necessary, as long as all discussions are conducted in a respectful manner.


For a cup of coffee, literally.
