This workbook course help students to be better prepared for a world where etiquette rules are not simply a matter of instinct.

This second edition of The Practical Use of International Etiquette adds an innovative chapter on driving etiquette which covers major concerns of safety and courtesy. Five new countries are added to the Appendix, thereby giving general etiquette rules of thumb for a total of 17 frequently traveled countries.

產品試閱 : CHAPTER ONE: What is Etiquette?

For good or for bad, people judge other people by the way that they behave in different situations. Manners, or rules of etiquette, are essential in modern, advanced cultures. The more affluent and successful a people or a culture gets, the more they want to know how to behave correctly. The rules and guidelines for manners differ from culture to culture but all cultures have these rules. If you want to succeed in your dealings with other people, regardless of what culture they are from, you need to have a basic understanding of what and what not to do in different situations and environments. Learning the rules for the culture(s) that you wish to interact with or live in will give you much more confidence and send a message to people that you are a refined and well-educated person or at the very least that you fit in. People will respect you and not find it difficult or somewhat offensive to deal and be with you. What many people forget is that the rules of etiquette must be learned, they don’t come naturally.

Acceptable etiquette is usually dictated by the cultural norms of a group. That group may be large like an ethnic culture or even the majority of the people in a country or region, but can also be comparatively small such as the culture of a company or religious grouping. It is impossible to cover all the possible variations of etiquette rules, and many are not even known until you come into contact with the group in question. However, there are generally accepted rules for different regions and peoples that make life much easier for you when you find yourself among them.

One aspect of proper etiquette seems to be agreed upon by experts in that good behavior starts with two foundational basics; first, being kind to other people, and second, treating people with respect. If you are kind to people and show them respect, you have mastered fifty percent of what real etiquette is all about. Sincerely caring about how you treat others can be seen and appreciated, so even if you break some little social rule, very few people would think ill of you. Another rule that we can put forth here is not to make people feel bad. Another person’s feelings are more important than which fork to use to eat salad!

There is a story about a famous hostess who had a foreign guest at a formal dinner. Finger bowls were on the table. These are used to wash or cleanse the fingers. The foreigner drank the water from the bowl. The hostess, Pearl Mesta, raised her fingerbowl up and immediately drank from it. The other guests did the same. They broke the rules of etiquette because of good manners.

So here we can make a distinction. Good manners can be thought of as the right thing to do for others and correct etiquette is the rules that come from our society or group. Etiquette rules change, good manners don’t. If you know the rules, then you also can know when to break them.

One final note, using etiquette rules to embarrass those who don’t know them is the worst breach of etiquette and good manners that there is. If you see someone doing something wrong and you use that mistake to embarrass them or to look down on them, especially if front of others, you are breaching the rules of good manners far, far worse than the person who just didn’t know better or likes red wine with seafood.
