Etiquette is defined as a system of rules that tell you the thoughtful and proper way to behave with other people. The rules mainly come down to respect, good taste and consideration.

Whether it’s a dinner party, travelling abroad or writing a thank-you note, you’ll be able to approach the situation confidently after the Etiquette Project.

In this project, you’ll learn:

  • What to say and how to act in various situations
  • Socially acceptable behaviour for navigating new or difficult circumstances
  • How to be a good house guest and a polite date
  • How to act responsibly and respectfully on social media
