Please and thank you are still magic words. This week will be a thorough introduction to good etiquette and proper manners. We will discuss the proper way to introduce yourself and how to greet people. We will review table etiquette, the proper way to set a table, and engaging dinner conversation. We will discuss party etiquette including how to be a respectful guest and how to make guests feel comfortable in your home. We will also learn the proper way to say thank you, both verbally and in writing. All skills will be demonstrated by Elizabeth and there will be time for questions and answers. Students will leave class with exercises to practice at home and to keep for future reference. Students learn proper manners and communication skills with a strong focus on respect and the value of others.
