Description

Life in Hong Kong is hectic so many parents let table manners fall to the bottom of the priority list.

But when you want to take your kids out for a meal, do you think twice because you're afraid they'll embarrass you?

Ms. Bernice Lee, Hong Kong's Trusted Etiquette Expert, will teach your child essential Western table manners for formal occasions. Over a delicious 3-course lunch, your child will learn:

  • Dining etiquette, including placing orders with the server, navigating place settings, correct handling of utensils, napkin use, rules for eating bread and soup, and how to confidently handle dining mishaps
  • The Do's and Don'ts of Mealtime Behavior
  • Greeting Others
  • Appropriate Conversations at the Table

This class is for ages 7-12.

MAXIMUM: 9 students per class

TESTIMONIALS FROM PARENTS

"...neither of us have been particularly strict with table manners and when we have been, there was little follow through .... When we spend time with our extended families, manners around the table are noticed and sometimes (more often than not), comments are made.

After having lunch with you, which we thoroughly enjoyed, we are now more confident with regards to what our children can absorb. They are also more confident in their own skills and strive to show how “adult” they are. Savanna (age 6) woke up the next morning and proceeded to show us how she could use adult utensils and slice her eggs. She did so perfectly. In fact, she prides herself as the “enforcer” while watching for airplane wings or elbows on the table. Dylan (age 10) is a more confident diner and now embraces the challenge of using an adult knife. In the short term, we aim to discard the childrens’ plastic utensils and make a full transition.

... the lunch was not a chore, but a great family experience and opportunity for all to share in new knowledge and being painlessly reminded of things we might have forgotten. We have no hesitation in recommending ELI and yourself to friends and fellow American Club members and having the setting of an intimate lunch was the perfect venue for a family."

~ Mr. and Mrs. Burgess

"I thoroughly enjoyed my evening with Bernice, learning about etiquette. I wasn't really expecting to enjoy it. I knew I'd learn things but I thought I'd be a bit naughty because I don't like being told what to do! But Bernice is a wonderful teacher. I really, really enjoyed it and I've learned some handy new tips to help me feel confident when I go out socially."

~ Mrs. K. Ponta

TESTIMONIALS FROM KIDS

"It was super fun. We got to fill out worksheets and the food was really good. More than half of the things I learned I didn't know before. It's just been a really cool experience. I'll always remember this because I learned so much. It was fantastic. Thanks!"

~ T. Hall, age 9

"I learned different ways to remember the skills. I can improve my manners and appear more polite. I'd love to come back to learn more about it because this is just Level 1."

~ M. Hall, age 11
