Read the following conversation and then answer questions 1 to 5.

Father: Where is your mother?

Charlotte: She is in the kitchen preparing our supper.

Father: Good. Before she is done, I want us to discuss something about table manners and etiquette. Just shortly.

Hugh: Yes, our teacher of English told us to collect facts about the same.

Father: First it is always good to serve small portions of food at a time. This is important because there will be very slim chances of leftovers. Sometimes, the leftovers go bad before the next day.

Charlotte: Yes and this results to wastage. I think it is also good not to speak with food in our mouth. Particles may fall on others' foods which is very disgusting.

Hugh: Daddy, Charlotte why is it important to chew our food properly before swallowing?

Father: This is because when the food is not properly chewed, it may lead to choking and... Charlotte: Yes, and in some cases, choking may lead to death.

Hugh: When chewing our food, our mouth must be closed. Other people should not see the food in our mouth as we chew it. Some people do not like to see this.

Father: Finally, we should not lick our fingers after eating, even if the food was extremely delicious. These and many more are called table manners and etiquette. I believe that you will have enough points to present to Madam Zuchu.

As we approached it. I looked over my shoulder and what I saw really frightened me. The western sky was almost black and the storm had raised a huge wave which seemed like a moving mountain.

"We'll stay here, Omari, until the storm subsides," my uncle shouted. We ran up the beach and found a small cave beside the rocks. We threw ourselves inside and lay on the ground.

Humans are social creatures and they can't live without one another. The proverb says that no man is an island. We need other people to share our joys or to share our moments of sorrow. It is therefore important to know how best we can treat people who are around us, be they family, friends or neighbours. Relating with people needs high standards of courtesy and respect. Have you ever been around someone who doesn't value your presence or help? Such people say things that make you feel unwanted or unvalued. I'm sure you won't make yourself available next time they need you.
The more you use polite words, the stronger the relationship will become. You have nothing to lose by saying sorry when you accidentally wrong someone. Saying thank you shows that you appreciate what other people do for you.
