Well hello and welcome to this English lesson about manners.
00:04
Believe it or not there are good manners and there are bad
00:06
manners. If you aren't sure what manners are it's the way
00:11
we behave in life in a way that's either polite or
00:14
impolite. When you show good manners or when you have good
00:18
manners. You do things around other people that don't annoy
00:23
them or offend them. Uh you do things while you're talking or
00:27
eating or just living your life that are polite and kind and
00:30
the sorts of things that human beings should do to each other.
00:34
But there's also bad manners. There's things you do around
00:37
other people that might annoy them or might make them feel
00:41
just a little bit aggravated. Now I should mention something.
00:45
This is an English lesson about manners. But it's also an
00:49
English lesson about culture. Some of the things that I
00:53
mention might be good manners here and bad manners in your
00:56
country. Some things might be bad manners here and are
01:00
totally fine in your country. So please remember that This is
01:03
from the perspective of a Canadian. This is an English
01:07
lesson about manners. But the cultural differences that
01:11
you'll be seeing are maybe because I live in Canada
01:14
because I live in North America and you live somewhere else. So
01:18
it should be interesting to see whether some of the things that
01:21
I think are good manners. Maybe you think are bad manners and
01:24
and vice versa as well. But I'm super excited to have you here
01:29
for this English lesson about manners. Interrupt So
01:33
interrupting someone when they're talking to someone else
01:37
is not good manners. That is definitely bad manners. Um
01:41
there are ways to insert yourself into a conversation. I
01:46
have a picture here of three adults talking. Sometimes
01:49
adults do interrupt each other a little bit but they might say
01:54
something like could I just interrupt for a moment or
01:56
excuse me could I just add something to this conversation?
02:00
Usually when we talk about interrupting we talk we're
02:03
talking about children. Children often interrupt their
02:07
parents when they're having conversations. Maybe at the
02:11
grocery store if I'm talking to the cashier one of my children
02:15
might interrupt and I might say to my child I might say hey
02:19
please don't interrupt when dad is talking to someone else. So
02:23
interrupting when someone is talking never a good idea. And
02:27
here's a few more pointers on how to interrupt nicely. You
02:30
could say excuse me could I just interrupt and ask a
02:34
question? So you you simply say that you're interrupting and
02:37
you start with excuse me or you would say something like if I
02:40
could just ask a question here sorry to interrupt that would
02:43
be a great way to actually interrupt in a nice way chewing
02:48
with your mouth open so this is another thing I have to laugh
02:53
because my own children tell each other not to chew with
02:58
their mouths open but it is considered impolite it is
03:02
considered bad manners in Canada to chew with your mouth
03:05
open when you're having a meal usually when you take a bite of
03:08
food you chew your mouth closed. It's quieter. People
03:14
don't have to hear the sound of food being chewed. And this
03:18
might be different in different parts of the world. But
03:21
certainly I remember as a parent teaching my kids
03:25
especially when we were eating somewhere else. Teaching my
03:30
kids not to chew with their mouth open. To chew with their
03:33
mouth closed when we're at their grandparents or in a
03:37
restaurant. Just polite and good manners. To chew with your
03:40
mouth closed. So there are a few things our bodies do that
03:45
make sounds. I'm going to talk about two of them. Burping is
03:49
one of them. A burp is when you eat food or for some other
03:53
reason you have some gas or air in your stomach and then you
03:57
burp. It sounds kind of like eh that's my pretend burp. Uh but
04:02
a burp is considered maybe bad manners a little bit. It really
04:06
depends where you do it and how you do it. So for instance if
04:11
I'm working out the field and for some reason I burp it's
04:15
probably not a big deal. But if I'm sitting having a meal with
04:19
Jen's parents and I burp really loudly at the dinner table or
04:23
at the supper table that would be that would be considered bad
04:28
manners. Okay. It's very polite to kind of do something like
04:34
burping somewhere where people can't hear you. And again this
04:37
might be different in different parts of the world. Um but yeah
04:40
that's that's I can't make the sound of a burp but that is
04:44
what a burp looks like. Uh and then what's next? Um another
04:48
one that's something about gas coming out of the other end of
04:53
your body. So when you burp air comes out of your mouth when
04:56
you fart when someone is farting it means that gas is
05:01
coming out the other end from down there. Uh this is
05:04
considered very rude. For a couple of reasons. It sounds
05:08
rude. It's very it's very bad manners to fart around other
05:11
people. Uh and then of course smells. There's a certain odour
05:16
that comes with farting. So this is something that with our
05:20
children as well we encourage them not to fart around other
05:24
people. Sorry there's a little bit of silliness associated
05:29
with farting and especially with children. Children think
05:33
farting is funny and so I think I'm giggling a little bit while
05:37
talking about farting because it reminds me of when I was a
05:41
kid and how kids kind of find farting hilarious. They think
05:45
it's a very funny thing that people do. And if you think
05:48
about it it it is a funny thing that we do as human beings. But
05:53
bad manners. Um to fart around other people. So it's good
05:59
manners to use the word please. In fact in English we're often
06:05
talking about teaching our kids to say please and thank you.
06:08
When our kids would go visit someone we would say don't
06:12
forget to say please when you ask for something and don't
06:16
forget to thank you when someone gives you something. So
06:20
it's very important especially as a parent that my children
06:23
learned how to say please when they were asking for something
06:27
and it was important to me that my children learned to say
06:31
thank you when someone helped them or gave them something. So
06:35
you'll often hear parents using both words together like
06:38
teaching your kids to say please and thank you. Or saying
06:42
to your kid don't forget to say please and thank you when you
06:45
visit your friend. Uh don't forget to thank your friend's
06:49
parents if they give you a snack or give you a ride
06:53
somewhere or take you to a restaurant and pay for the
06:56
food. Make sure you say please when you're asking for
06:59
something and make sure you say thank you when someone gives
07:02
you something. Uh just good manners to do that definitely.
07:07
Tipping. So this depends on the kind of restaurant you're in
07:11
and what country you're in. Tipping is the act of giving
07:15
money at the end of a meal that's more than the bill for
07:20
the restaurant that you've eaten in. So if you go in the
07:22
bill $30, you might leave a 510 or 15 tip. 15 would be a lot
07:27
for a $30 meal. Usually it's around 20%. I think. 15 or 20%.
07:33
But tipping this might be different depending on what
07:36
country you're in. In Canada if you go to a fast food
07:40
restaurant like McDonald's you don't tip. Uh if you go to a
07:45
sit down restaurant. That's the phrase I would use. Where
07:48
there's a waiter and they bring you a menu and you order your
07:51
food and they bring you your food we generally think
07:55
considered tipping to be good manners. It's just a good idea
07:58
to show your thanks to the server by leaving a tip. Notice
08:04
I'm using tipping and leaving a tip kind of interchangeably.
08:07
Tipping is a good idea. Leaving a tip is a good idea. Putting
08:13
your feet on the table. So this is a tricky one. I put my feet
08:18
on my coffee table when I'm sitting in my living room. But
08:23
I don't put my feet on the supper table or dinner table or
08:28
kitchen table. There's a lot of different names for that table.
08:31
When I'm in the kitchen I do not put my feet up on the table
08:35
ever. That would be very very bad manners. If I was visiting
08:39
my sister and I put my feet up on her kitchen table. Like if I
08:44
sat in a chair and put my feet up on her kitchen table she
08:47
would she would be very annoyed me. That would be extremely bad
08:51
manners. But when I'm sitting in a living room when I'm
08:54
sitting on a couch watching TV I often put my feet on the
08:59
coffee table that we have there. Cutting in line. This is
09:04
another one where this might have a different yeah whether
09:10
this is good or bad manners might depend on where you live.
09:13
In Canada and generally in North America you do not cut in
09:18
line. So cutting in line is when there's a line of people
09:21
and you just go in the middle of the line or you try to get
09:24
to the front of the line. Um lines are very I'm going to use
09:29
the word sacred. Lines are very sacred in Canada and in the
09:33
United States. We don't cut in line. And there's a few other
09:36
words for this. You can but in line or bud in line. Um
09:40
students at school will often say no budding when people try
09:44
to get in line in front of them. Um now I said that
09:49
cutting in line it does happen in Canada. But usually it
09:53
happens with like teenagers and younger people. Uh if you go to
09:57
the bank you would never cut in line at the bank in Canada.
10:02
That would just be extremely rude. Uh you could tell I'm
10:07
going odd and odd about how rude it would be. But it is my
10:09
understanding that in different parts of the world things might
10:12
work a little bit differently. So it's considered good manners
10:16
to ask before you take something. I I know this might
10:20
sound kind of funny but my brother if my brother wanted to
10:25
borrow my lawn mower he would text me or call me and he would
10:29
ask hey can I borrow your lawn mower? And then I would say yes
10:33
or no. He wouldn't just come here and take it. That would be
10:37
considered impolite. Bad manners. Annoying and Um a lot
10:42
of times too it's important for children to ask before they
10:47
take some money. Sometimes my kids want to buy lunch at
10:51
school and instead of just taking money from my wallet
10:54
they ask. It's considered really good manners to ask
10:58
before you take something. Saying sorry is considered very
11:03
polite in good manners. Uh we use the word sorry a lot in
11:08
Canada. If I bump into someone at the grocery store I would
11:11
say oh I'm sorry or I would say sorry. Um If someone was
11:15
standing at the grocery store in front of something I wanted
11:19
to buy I might say excuse me could I just get in there and
11:24
grab something sorry to bother you. So saying sorry in various
11:29
ways is a polite way to make conversation go better. It's
11:34
just a good idea. Um it sounds kind of funny when I say sorry
11:37
but I say sorry a lot. I think Canadians say sorry a lot. So
11:42
this is one that we kind of talked about just a few seconds
11:45
ago. Covering your mouth when coughing or sneezing. Again we
11:50
used to use hand when we cough or when we sneeze people would
11:54
be like achoo or they would go and cough into their hand but
11:58
we've been told now to use our elbow to cough or sneeze into
12:03
our elbow. It's a little bit hard for me. I don't think my
12:06
arms long enough to do that. But it is not it is very bad
12:11
manners to just go achoo and just have things fly out of
12:16
your nose or to just cough with your mouth open without
12:20
covering. Definitely. Always a idea to cover when you are
12:26
coughing or sneezing. Especially during COVID. Uh
12:31
this one is particular for teachers possibly. Um students
12:35
sometimes chew gum and chewing gum with your mouth open is bad
12:41
manners. But chewing gum and putting the gum under the seat
12:45
of the desk or putting the gum under the chair you're sitting
12:49
in is very very bad manners. This still happens at schools
12:54
and it happens on park benches or if you sit down in the food
12:58
court at mall if you touch the bottom of the chair there's
13:02
probably gum stuck there. But it's considered extremely rude
13:06
to put gum under a chair. I'm just laughing at this man
13:10
because he looks kind of like a school teacher to me. And he's
13:14
looking under a chair thinking ah those students they just
13:17
keep putting gum under the chairs. Bad manners. Very very
13:21
bad manners. Uh introducing people is good it's good
13:24
manners to introduce people. If Jen and I run into someone that
13:29
I know from the past that Jen doesn't know. Um I will make
13:34
sure I introduce Jen. I will say hey Jim long time no see.
13:39
What's it been? Like 10 years? Ah man you look great. By the
13:43
way this is my wife Jen. We've been married for 20 whatever
13:46
years? 26 years? Twenty-5? I should remember. But certainly
13:51
it would be bad manners if Jen and I were shopping. And if I
13:57
saw an old friend who I haven't seen for 20 years who Jen
14:01
doesn't know. It would be bad manners if I didn't introduce
14:04
Jen and that person to each other. So always a good idea to
14:08
introduce people. Picking your nose. I couldn't find a good
14:14
picture until I thought oh I'll find a picture of a child
14:17
because in English we would say it grosses me out when I see
14:22
people pick their nose. Um when you pick your nose you put your
14:25
finger up your nose and well I'm not going to describe it in
14:29
too much detail but certainly I think a lot of people pick
14:34
their nose privately. So people will pick their nose when noone
14:38
is looking. But it is considered bad manners to pick
14:41
your nose in front of other people. This is another thing
14:45
that parents often teach their not to do. You know don't pick
14:49
your nose when when you're around other people. Actually
14:53
don't pick your nose. I'm not going to talk about it anymore.
14:57
It's up to you whether you pick your nose or not. Just don't do
15:00
it in front of a group of people. Greeting visitors. So
15:04
when someone comes to visit us like let's say Jen's parents
15:10
come for a visit. When we see them drive in we will go to the
15:16
front door of our house and open the door and welcome them
15:20
to our house. We don't just sit at the kitchen table and wait
15:25
for them to come in. When we have visitors people who don't
15:29
who we don't see very often we've quite often will greet
15:34
greeting visitors at the door is a very polite and kind thing
15:39
to do. So you can see this family here has guests and they
15:43
are greeting them at the door. And then the reverse. This
15:47
isn't the greatest picture of this because I think this is
15:50
happening. When we have guests when they leave we see them to
15:55
the door. It's kind of a weird English phrase isn't it? When
15:58
you see someone to the door it means that you walk to the door
16:03
with them when they leave your house. So if Jen's parents come
16:07
and they visit for a few hours and we have a cup of tea and
16:11
then they say well we need to get going Jen and I will see
16:14
them to the door. That means we'll walk to the front door of
16:18
the house with them. And they'll put their shoes and
16:21
jackets on and we'll just talk in the entrance way for a
16:25
little bit before they leave. Definitely good manners to
16:27
greet someone at the door and see someone to the door when
16:31
they visit. Here's another one that's possibly North American
16:36
but possibly not. It's considered polite to knock.
16:40
Knocking before entering someone's house is very very
16:44
polite. It's a good manners. Ringing the doorbell knocking
16:47
both count as the same type of activity. But it's considered
16:52
rude to just walk into someone's house. So let me
16:56
clarify a little bit. When we when I visit my sister I
17:02
usually walk straight into her house. But when I visit friends
17:08
I knock or ring the doorbell when I get there. I think it
17:12
depends on how well you know the person. But let me think
17:16
this through. When we visit Jen's parents yeah I no we
17:20
don't knock. We just walk in. But when we visit my friends we
17:23
always knock. So it definitely depends on how well you know
17:28
someone whether you knock or ring the doorbell or not. Um so
17:34
it's considered good manners to say excuse me before asking
17:39
someone a question. The perfect example for this would be if
17:44
you're lost and asking for directions. You would say
17:47
excuse me. Could you tell me how to get to the museum?
17:51
Excuse me. Do you have change for a $5 bill? Excuse me. Could
17:55
you tell me where to find the town hall. I I'm having trouble
18:02
thinking of examples. But When you ask a question and you say
18:08
excuse me before you ask it it makes the question sound a lot
18:12
more polite. And it's definitely good manners. Uh
18:16
this is definitely not polite. This is something that we
18:20
discourage in our house but sometimes it's hard. Using your
18:24
phone at dinner. Or using your phone especially in a
18:28
restaurant while you're eating with other people. Can be
18:31
considered bad manners. It really depends. When my
18:35
brothers and sisters go out to eat when we go to a which we
18:40
haven't done for three years. When we go out to eat we
18:43
usually just turn the ringers off on our phones and leave
18:47
them in our pockets. Um when you're visiting with people it
18:51
can be impolite. It can be bad manners to be on your phone all
18:55
the time. Washing your hands before eating. So this is more
19:00
of a custom. But it's also considered good manners. Um
19:04
when you are out and about in the world depending on what you
19:08
do your hands tend to get dirty and it's just a really good
19:11
idea to wash your hands before you eat. This is something have
19:15
tried to teach our children to do and they do it 99% of the
19:19
time. It's especially important right now during COVID. You
19:23
should always make sure that you wash your hands before you
19:27
eat. It's just a good practice. It's sanitary and it's
19:31
definitely good manners as well. Holding doors for others.
19:37
So this is an interesting one because this is changing a
19:41
little bit. So holding a door for someone is considered
19:45
polite. I still consider it polite. If I'm walking into a
19:49
building and someone is walking behind me. I will often open
19:53
the door and hold it for them when they go in. Man or woman.
19:58
Okay? Um I think though that this is changing a little bit
20:02
because people sometimes feel like I don't know let me just
20:06
put it this way. I'm 50 years old. I still think it's very
20:10
polite to hold a door for someone. If I'm leaving a
20:14
building and someone is leaving right behind me. I will hold
20:17
the door for them for a little bit. Because doors close
20:20
automatically on buildings. So if there's someone right behind
20:24
me I don't want to walk out have the door kind of swing as
20:28
they're coming out. So I just take a second to hold the door
20:31
for them. Not commenting on looks. So this is a tricky one.
20:39
When someone gets a haircut and you think it looks good it's
20:43
very kind and polite to say hey your new haircut looks great.
20:47
Um or that shirt looks good on you. But when you think
20:51
someone's haircut doesn't look good. Or you think the shirt
20:55
they're wearing is ugly. It's very very rude to say that. I
20:59
would say to someone your new haircut looks really good. I
21:03
would say to Someone your new shirt looks great. If someone
21:06
got a haircut though and it didn't look I would not say to
21:10
them your haircut looks awful. I would consider that bad
21:13
manners. Um even though sometimes it's good to be
21:17
honest. I wouldn't say that. If someone was wearing a shirt
21:20
that was like just didn't look good. I wouldn't say that to
21:23
them. Um so commenting on looks can go both ways. If it's a
21:28
positive comment I think that's okay. But if it's a negative
21:32
comment yeah I think that would be bad manners. Especially if
21:35
you did it repeatedly. But borrowing without returning. So
21:41
when you borrow something it means you do not have that
21:45
thing and you go and ask someone else if you can use
21:49
theirs. You borrow theirs. The most common thing I think that
21:52
people borrow would be other people's tools. So when you
21:57
borrow something it is very bad manners to not return it. Um
22:02
I've had people in the past borrow things from me. Um and
22:07
then days, weeks, months go by and they haven't returned it.
22:13
It's very very rude. It is definitely considered bad
22:17
manners to borrow something and then not return it. Or even
22:21
keep it for a long time. Uh if you borrow something you should
22:25
always bring it back to the person who you borrowed it
22:28
from. Writing thank you notes is considered very polite and
22:33
very kind. Especially after like a significant event. So if
22:38
you get married and people give you wedding gifts you should
22:42
send them thank you notes. You should write a little note that
22:45
says thank you for the barbecue. It was great. You
22:48
guys are awesome. Thanks for coming to my wedding. Um we
22:51
don't normally do it after birthdays. Like I don't send
22:55
thank you notes after a birthday party. But after
22:59
something significant. Um like if I had If I had a party if
23:07
Jen and I had an anniversary party and people gave us gifts
23:11
I would send them a thank you note afterwards. Talking during
23:15
a movie. So we talked about talking loudly and I think I
23:19
mentioned this a little bit. Talking during a movie is just
23:22
incredibly bad manners. When people go to see a movie they
23:26
want to enjoy the show. They want to enjoy what they're
23:30
watching. Part of that enjoyment is being able to hear
23:33
it. So talking during a movie Movie. Having your phone on and
23:38
glowing during a movie is also I think bad manners. Um and
23:41
certainly you can see in this picture these two guys are
23:45
annoyed because the people sitting a few rows back are
23:49
talking during a movie. Not a very nice thing to do.
23:53
Apologizing is considered a good thing to do. And I this is
23:58
kind of a duplicate. We talked about saying sorry. Um when you
24:02
bump into someone you should say I'm sorry. Um when You yeah
24:07
that's probably the best example. When you're at the
24:09
grocery store and you accidentally bump into someone.
24:12
You know what bumping is right? When you you turn and you hit
24:15
someone by accident you should definitely say I'm sorry to
24:19
them. Swearing is never a good idea. So the other day someone
24:25
in the comments asked if I ever swear. Uh if I ever use bad
24:29
words. Uh and I said I forget my exact reply but here's my
24:33
reply. Uh yes sometimes when the classic is if you hit your
24:37
thumb with a hammer. When I'm working on a farm. It's a very
24:42
physical job and sometimes you know you're you're working on
24:46
things where you you bang your knuckles against something like
24:50
my microphone. And then a swear word might come out. I do swear
24:54
occasionally. But generally I do not swear very much at all.
24:58
I think because I'm a parent and I don't want to swear in
25:00
front of my children. And also because I've spent a lot of
25:04
time in a school teachers cannot swear. It's just you
25:08
just don't swear around kids. Um it's just not part of how I
25:13
talk. Um some people do swear more but I definitely don't
25:16
swear very much but it I consider it bad manners to
25:19
swear I think when you are with friends and everyone uses swear
25:25
words. It can be cool for younger people to swear. But
25:28
generally when if I was at the bank and the person in front of
25:32
me started swearing that would be considered very bad manners
25:36
indeed. And we have something called table manners. Which I
25:41
wanted to talk about just for a minute or two. So table manners
25:45
are things like you put your napkin on your lap. And you
25:48
have utensils or cutlery. Um like forks, knives and spoons
25:53
in a certain order. And you're supposed to use I think you go
25:58
from the outside in. Use the smallest fork for your salad
26:01
and the bigger fork for your main meal. And when you're done
26:04
you're supposed to put I don't know all the rules. I don't
26:07
know all I think in North America we have table manners
26:12
than we used to. Um I do know that it's not polite to chew
26:18
with your mouth open. I do know that when there's when I'm at a
26:21
fancy dinner like at a wedding and there's multiple pieces of
26:25
cutlery. I almost always have to ask which fork am I supposed
26:28
to use first because I don't always know what to do. But yes
26:34
table manners I think depending on what country you live in
26:37
there are different levels. And it's considered at a table to
26:42
be it's considered to be bad manners to reach. You're it's
26:46
better to ask someone to pass someone or pass something to
26:51
you. So you can see this person is reaching for looks like the
26:55
butter or a cup or something like that. Can't quite see in
26:58
the picture. It's good manners to ask people to pass things.
27:03
Could you please pass the potatoes? Could you please pass
27:06
the bread? Could you please pass the milk? Instead of
27:09
reaching past someone and grabbing it. That's considered
27:14
bad manners. So if you were ever at a dinner Bob the
27:17
Canadian doesn't really know all of the rules for the table
27:22
manners that we would use. Uh but certainly put the napkin on
27:26
your lap. Don't reach across in front of other people to grab
27:29
things. Uh be kind and polite and don't don't chew with your
27:33
mouth open. And certainly don't put your feet. Don't put your
27:36
feet on the table. Especially at supper time. That would be a
27:39
really bad idea.
