It is interesting to know…

Some British and American people like to invite friends and colleagues for a meal at home. But don’t be upset if your English friends don’t invite you home. It doesn’t mean that they don’t like you!

Dinner parties usually start between 7 and 8 pm and end at about 11. Ask your host what time you should arrive. It’s polite to bring flowers, chocolates or a bottle of wine to your hostess.

Usually the evening starts with drinks and snacks (ask for a soft drink if you don’t like alcohol.) Do you want to be extra polite? Say how much you like the house, the pictures, or your hostess’s dress. But remember-it’s not polite to ask how much things cost.

Dinner will usually start at about 8 or 9 o’clock. In many families, the husband sits at one end of the table and the wife sits at the other end. They eat with their guests.

You’ll probably start the meal with soup, or something small as a “starter”, then you’ll have meat or fish with vegetables, and then a dessert (sometimes called a “sweet” or a “pudding”), followed by coffee. It’s polite to finish everything on your plate and to take more if you want it. Some people eat bread with the meat, but not everyone does.

Most people ask “Do you mind if I smoke?” before they take out their cigarettes after the meal.

Did you enjoy the evening? Call your hostess the next day or write her a short “thank you” letter.

Perhaps it seems funny for you, but British and American people say “thank you”, “thank you” all the time!
