Research: Internet


Emily Post—the most trusted name in etiquette—has always been there to help people navigate every conceivable social situation. The tradition continues with this 100 percent revised and updated edition, which covers the formal, the traditional, the contemporary, and the casual.

The Emily Post Institute, created by Emily in 1946 and run today by third generation family members, serves as a "civility barometer" for American society and continues Emily's work. That work has grown to address the societal concerns of the 21st century including business etiquette, raising polite children and civility in America.

Emily Post's Etiquette, 17th Edition also remains the definitive source for timeless advice on entertaining, social protocol, table manners, guidelines for religious ceremonies, expressing condolences, introductions, how to be a good houseguest and host, invitations, correspondence, planning a wedding, giving a toast, and sportsmanship.


Manners International is a multifaceted consulting corporation that provides etiquette and protocol workshops, instructional videos, interactive online learning solutions and instructional kits.

Manners International's workshops and media products are designed to meet the growing demand for effective manners, etiquette and protocol improvement solutions.
Etiquette and protocol are society's guideposts for recognizing and respecting other individuals, cultures and customs. Manners International provides the needed knowledge to respond to domestic or international business and social situations for the new millennium.

Aoart from this, I have found that there are a few other corporations that provide training courses on learning etiquette for the public.

It is quite interesting to know their approach, the services they provide, and how active are they (such as the amount of people that would apply those courses).


Debrett's is the modern authority on all matters etiquette, taste and achievement. Recognising people of distinction and the finer things in life are true to Debrett's heritage, rooted in publishing chronicles of the great and the good over the past two centuries.

Debrett's range of modern etiquette publications such as Debrett's A-Z of Modern Manners, Debrett's Wedding Guide, Debrett's Correct Form, Debrett's Etiquette for Girls and Debrett's Guide for the Modern Gentleman are acclaimed, indispensable references in a world where 'getting it right' is more and more important with conventions less and less understood.

In the book - A-Z of Modern Manners, the content includes: apologising, babies, chivalry, drunkenness, eavesdropping, funerals, guests, honesty, invitations, jargon, kissing, laughing, mobiles, nannies, office parties, proposals, queuing, restaurants, swearing, tipping, underwear, vulgarity, wine, xenophobia, yawning, zips, etc. It is Debrett's first book defining modern manners in over a decade. It provides a comprehensive review of traditional codes of conduct, which is entertaining and refreshing with an insight into new social challenges and modern dilemmas.

I found that there are a lot of manners that I have not noticed before.
