Imagine you’ve been invited to afternoon tea in Britain. Would you know what to do? British etiquette expert William Hanson tells us that table manners differ around the world.

In this video you will learn what an etiquette expert does, some rules for enjoying afternoon tea and how to pronounce the word “scone”. (The sentence should rhyme: Once it’s scone it’s gone!)


1 Stir your tea back and forth gracefully not to make a noise (rather than round and round).

2. Keep your hands in your lap (rather than resting your wrists on the table).
