Class Experience

This class is taught in English.
In this class, we will learn: 
- Table Place Settings 
- Napkins & Handling Silverware
- Difficult to Eat Foods
- Do's & Don'ts of Graceful Dining
For example, where do I put my elbows when I am dining, speaking, or listening?
Can I check my cell phone during dinner?
What if I need to be excused for a moment?
Where does my napkin go while I am eating?  While I am excused?  When I am finished?
Which hand do I hold my fork with when I am in at home?  At School?  In London?
When may I begin eating?
What is pleasant conversation and how do I learn it?
How do I eat pizza, fruit, asparagus, or bread in a formal setting?  In a non-formal setting?
Can I arrive late?  
Why do hiring managers prefer to interview over a luncheon?
What are business etiquette skills and why do I need them?
I hope all students will practice what they learn in class at home with their families over meals.  What a fun activity to engage in as a family.  I tell my students that it is important to practice eating formally and informally at home so that when you find yourself in a formal dining situation, unexpectedly, that you will feel confident because you have already taken the time to practice social and business etiquette skills.
