What Does Manners and Etiquette Mean ?
Manners are not anything to do with whether you are rich, have had a good education or grew up in certain social circles,. Today people are much more likely to define themselves by their work, their interests as well as their background or social status.
Learning the basis of good manners can make you feel far more confident in different social circumstances.
It is also important to put others at their ease and to show natural human concern which can be called ‘natural politeness’. A good starting point is to learn the ‘rules of formal’ etiquette so that when you are in an unusual or formal situation it is very useful to know the manners required
A basic guideline is to follow the 'less is more principle’ meaning that stiff and rigid manners are of less use in social and business situations while more charm, poise, and natural consideration for other will be of far greater value.

I had Ms Veronica's lesson of Table Manners & Etiquette and manners for Afternoon Tea. Among a lot of manner schools in England, I wanted to learn traditional English manners from a teacher from the upper classes.
Ms Veronica is the one who I was looking for for over 2 years.
Finally I met her for the first time, she looks so classy, different from other people.
Not only elegant, but she is so friendly as well.
I am sure you would find real sense of English aristocrats in her lessons.
That is what you cannot feel from other schools, that is 'more than good manners'.
I hope you enjoy it.
