礼貌与规矩 Manners

【intro 今日导读】

From a very young age, many of us are taught to be polite and to have good manners. We are told to be on our best behavior when we have visitors in our home, or when we are in other people’s homes. But just because we are expected to be nice doesn’t mean that everyone has manners.

Some people might have bad manners because no one told them what’s OK or not OK to say around others. It’s difficult to tell someone that their behavior is bad. Would you want to tell someone that?

Gary tells Marni about how his brother has terrible manners. He doesn’t know what to do about it. Find out more in today’s lesson about bad behavior.

【Dialogue 情景对话】

Gary:  Marni, I don’t know what to do.

Marni:  Why is that?

Gary:  My brother has the worst manners.

Marni:  Oh, no.

Gary:  And I just don’t know what to do. He’s so offensive whenever people are talking, he just doesn’t care what they have to say. He’s burnt so many bridges that friends of mine don’t even want to come to our gatherings anymore.

Marni:  Wow. Do you think he’s aware of this? Or is he unaware of his actions?

Gary:  I don’t think he’s aware of it. I think he’s just an insulting type of guy.

Marni:  Interesting. Well, perhaps you can try to lead by example and be really mindful of the example that you’re setting with manners that you have.

Gary:  I could do that. I hope that he can become considerate of other people and what their thoughts are and how they feel. Do you think that’ll do it?

Marni:  I think that good modeling is really important. And when you’re in a group of people, just trying to steer the conversation away from anything that can get offensive. But it’s important to try be yourself and to show him certain social graces.

Gary:  Yeah.

Marni:  Good luck.
