邀请朋友同他们不认识的人一起共进晚餐Inviting friends to a supper with strangers
I know you are interested in [oil painting], so I’m sure you’ll be interested in [Mr. And Mrs. Lin Dun]! They are coming here to have supper [next Sunday night, October the twelfth], and we’d like you and [Walter] to come, too.
[Mr. And Mrs. Lin Dun] are a very charming couple we met in [London] last summer. They have a wonderful collection of [oil paintings of various stages]; and I understand that Mr. Lin Dun is quite an authority on [oil] painting]. I’m sure you and Walter will thoroughly enjoy the evening and their company.
We’re planning a supper for 6:00 pm; that will give us a nice long evening to talk. If I don’t hear from you before then, I’ll be expecting you on the [twelfth]!
Good manners are very important in the communication of daily life. Everyone likes a person with good manners. But what are good manners? How does one know what should do and what should not do when trying to be a good - mannered person?
Well, here are some common examples. A person with good manners never laughs at a people in trouble. Instead, he (she) always tries to consult or offer help to the person. When he (she) takes a bus and sees an old man or a sick man, he (she) always gives his (her) seat to him. He doesn't interrupt other people when they are talking. He uses a handkerchief when he sneezes or coughs. He does not spite in public places.
Ideas of what are good manners are not always the same in different regions. For example, people in Western countries usually kiss each other to show their greetings, whereas in China, kissing in public is something of unusual and sometimes be regarded as impolite to somebody else. So it is important to know what is regarded as polite and impolite before you go to a region. But remember that it is always right to be kind and helpful to others.
