English Party Time is a series of relaxed and fun activities held by the English Language Centre in HFPJC every Monday evening from 19:30 to 20:10. In English Party Time, ELC aims to provide students a friendly and cozy environment where they can use, practice and play with English as much as possible.
“Western Table Manners”, the fourth activity in this semester’s English Party Time, was held on 6 March. Western cuisine is more and more popular in Macau. It is very useful for students to master these skills. Students who joined this activity all enjoyed themselves learning different kinds of western table etiquette. To start with, students first introduced themselves to each other. After this, ELTAs talked about the seating and napkin etiquette with skits and let students followed. Later, ELTAs showed students different utensils that are used on table and how to use them. At last, all students went through the whole procedure of a western dinner together. Table manners rules are not complicated, but will help students make a great impression on their companions. They learned vocabulary related to western restaurants.
