Etiquette Survival Interactive DVD Series
Produced by Sue Fox, Founder of Etiquette Survival and the author of the nationally renowned Etiquette For Dummies and Business Etiquette For Dummies.
A humorous and entertaining series of workshops that will keep teens and adults engaged and instruct them on how to behave with self-confidence and grace in social situations. The Etiquette Survival DVD Series provides a fun and creative way to teach the basics of good etiquette and have fun in the process! Challenge family members or friends to one of the interactive quizzes and see how much YOU know about etiquette!
The instructional DVD covers all the basics of dining etiquette and table settings, from a casual breakfast to the most formal affair. You will learn proper placement of glassware, place settings, and utensils, with instructions on both American and European dining methods. You will also learn social etiquette skills such as, how to make social introductions, proper handshakes, the importance of good posture and eye contact, telephone manners, and much more!
Most people are confused about proper behavior in one situation or another. Furthermore, times have changed drastically during the past few decades, and social niceties are not nearly as pervasive or as clearly defined as they used to be.
This DVD is designed for anyone who has ever felt uncomfortable attending a formal dinner, entertaining guests, or meeting an unfamiliar group of people. In other words, just about anyone!
Also available in VHS format.
" I have used the Etiquette Survival Series in my teen skills class. It is excellent! The students are always surprised by what they do and do not know." -- Sarah Spillman, Teacher at Hudson Bend Middle School, Austin, TexasSee all Editorial Reviews

However what was disappointing about this DVD is that the portion for adults was almost exactly the same as the teen portion. It was like watching the same video over again. Almost all of the narration was the same and the same points were covered twice. As for A Place at the Table, it briefly with not much detail explains how to set a table for casual, semi-formal, and formal dining. Unless you are planning a fancy dinner party, you don't need A Place at the Table. Also, proper table setting is already addressed in the Teen and Adult etiquette videos. Another disappointment was a slight defect in the quiz portion of the DVD. I recommend buying one of the VHS versions of either teen or adult etiquette by Sue Fox instead. They are half the price and contain the almost the same information.
Don't accidentally embarrass yourself by committing an etiquette crime. Buy one of Sue Fox's etiquette videos just not the DVD.
Having the quizes at the end of each section not only made it fun but helped us retain what we learned. I thought I already knew about etiquette, however, I have already put much of this dvd's content to use in many social situations.
5 stars to this dvd and its wealth of information.
