how to use them. Here is your meat; help yourself to vegetables fromthe dish Don't take more than you can eat.
CHRIS:   All right; Mother; may I take some mustard2?

FATHER:   Stay where you are. You'll soon learn.(Chris begins to eat; he putssome vegetables into his mouth with his knife. )MOTHER:   What are you doi ng? Don't you know that you must never put you knifeinto your mouth?
CHRIS:   But why, Mummy? It's easier like that sometimes.
FATHER:   You .might cut your mouth. Do you want to make your mouth bigger than it k.
is? Use your forCHRIS:   No, I don't. But I might prick5 my tongue with the points of my fork.
FATHER:   Well, you must learn not to.
MOTHER:   There, leave the lad alone. He'll soon learn. Have you finished, dear?
Lay your knife and fork on your plate. No, don't cross them. Put thehandles towards you.

7. Read the following passage once. Underline the key words while reading and retell the passage to your partner.

    We say that a person has good manners if he or she behaves politely andis kind and helpful to others. Everyone likes a person with good manners but no one likes a person with bad manners. "Yes," you may say, "but what are good manners? How does one know what to do and what not to do?"Well, here are some examples of the things that a well-mannered person does or does not do.
He never laughs at people when they are in trouble. Instead, he tries to help them. He is always kind, never cruel, to people. When people are waiting for a bus, or in a post office, he takes his turn. He does not push to the front line of the queue. In the bus he gives his seat to an older person or a lady who is standing12. If he accidentally bumps13 into someone, or gets in their way, he says "Excuse me" or "I'm sorry".
He says "Please" when lte makes a request , and "Thank you" when he receives something. He stands up when he is speaking to a lady or an older person, he does not sit down until the other person is seated. He does not in'terrupt other people when they are talking. He does not talk too much himself. He does not talk loudly or laugh loudly in public. When he is eating he does not speak with his mouth full of food.
