I believe that manners and etiquette are to be learnt, or in other words, schooled.

I'm sure there are a thousand websites telling you about etiquette and manners - it is easy to get overwhelmed.

So, if I could highlight the areas anyone who want to improve on their are these areas:


The Art of Conversation

  • Saying please, thank you, hello, good bye.
  • Learning to do proper introductions, or to introduce yourself when not properly being introduced.
  • Asking the right questions; not intrusive ones
  • Learning how to express yourself and keep opinions about things to yourself.
  • Being comfortable in a social situation
  • Not to give advice whenever in conversation unless asked.
  • Wearing the right clothes as per occasion.
  • To be perfectly groomed
