How to Show Good Manners While Speaking

Home » Speaking » How to Show Good Manners While Speaking

When we speak to others, we should follow some manners by using some words in our speaking. By using basic good manners, we show respect to others.

In speaking, when we use the words- 

  • Saying please shows consideration for others to whom we speak. It shows your politeness. 
  • Thank you shows gratitude and appreciation when you receive something.
  • Excuse me, shows consideration for others to whom you speak. Sometimes, we want to interrupt someone; you can say- excuse me and continue to express your thoughts.
  • Question to ask for something to get permission. It shows your good behaviour.
  • Reciprocating someone shows your feelings for others, like replying to a question about how you are and asking how they are. 
  • Pardon me shows acknowledgement of the mistake you have made.
