This week’s Chinese lesson is created by myself without the guidance of the textbook. I was thinking since we learned “qing” (please) in Chinese last week, why don’t take this opportunity to teach students the full list of basic manner words?

Every society has its own code of rules about what constitutes good manners. The rules reflect the society’s ideas on how people should interact with others to show respect, courtesy, condolences, and consideration of one another. Although the rules may change with the variance of time, locations, and culture. the most basic and common words always include the following seven magic words: please, hello, goodbye, I am sorry, no problem, thank you and you are welcome.
