Manners are very important in every country but different countries have different ideas about what good behavior and good manners are.

Nowadays many people travel abroad, so it is important to learn a little about what to do in a foreign country. Here are a few rules of introduction which are useful to remember:

I .Men are introduced to women:

2.Young people to older ones:

3. Old friends to newcomers:

4. A young girl to a married woman.

Socially women are never presented to a man unless he is the Head of State or a member of the Royal Family.

Do you know the right way to address people, to speak to people in English? When you know people well its very easy, of course. You just call them by their first name. But if we didnt know each other very well, if we werent personal friends, then I should call you Miss Grey and you would call me Mr Green.

The usual response to an introduction is How do you do which is a sort of greeting and not a question about your health and the best answer to it is How do you do. Sometimes one may say less formaly: I am glad to meet you, Mr. Jordan

Always stand when introduced, ladies may remain seated as a rule.

Handshaking is rather rare in Britain and USA, but it is the correct thing to do on the

Continent. When an Englishman passes a friend in the street he only touches his hat.

British people occasionally shake hands especially when folrmally introduced, but they do

not shake hands with people they see often. Instead they smile and say: Good morning.

Good atternoon, Good evening.

The usual phrase to use when you leave is Goodbye but there are a number of other less formal ways of parting such as: Byebye. See you later. So long. Farewell (when you parting for a long).

Say Good night only when you leave and it is afler eight oclock at night.

David Hill, an English businessman, is at Sheremetievo airport in Moscow. Pete and Nick, Russian businessmen, are at the airport to meet Mr. Hill.

Pete: Hello, Mr. Hill!

David: Hello, Pete! It is so good to see you! Thank you for meeting me.

Pete: I am very glad to see you too. Can I introduce my friend and colleague Nick?

David: How do you do, Nick?

Nick: How do you do, David? I'm glad to meet you.

And they shake hands. In Britain most people shake hands when they meet someone for the first time. It is not usual to shake hands when you say good-bye or when you meet again later.

David: Oh, I like Russian winter. Our winter is different. It's much milder. Have you ever been to England, Nick?

Nick: Will you repeat it, please? My English is not good enough, I am afraid.

David: Have you been to London?

Nick: No, not yet. But I am planning to go to England in summer.
