With a bit of nervousness, the teens were ready and up for the challenge. Armida Geiger, Adelie School of Protocol, director comments, “It is always a pleasure to witness the change in teens; from anxiety and nervousness to feeling relaxed and confident at the conclusion of the 2 1/2 hour class. Once teens know the proper way to hold their silverware, pass food counter-clockwise, and talk with food in their mouth, they can approach any dining situation and feel confident. The confidence comes from knowledge of the dining protocol and finese at the table comes from practice.” Often there is confusion over which bread plate is yours,  on the left or the right? How soon should you start to eat and what should I do with my spoon when I am finished? Armida Geiger http://www.adeliesop.wordpress.com has a passion for teaching manners. She enjoys watching the transformation of individuals from uncomfortable to confident. Practice is key to refining your good manners. Don’t wait for a special occasion to polish up on your manners. Practice every time you eat. Soon you will notice that your acquired dining skill takes no effort at all!  Contact Armida Geiger 603-868-7156 adelieschoolofprotocol@comcast.net
