We are pleased to launch the first set of videos in our new ‘learning at home’ series. Each short but informative tutorial video focuses on a particular topic and is led by one of The English Manner or Beaumont Etiquette’s tutors. Now you don’t just have to attend one of our courses in the UK, USA, China, India or elsewhere in the world – you can begin learning in etiquette, manners and civility from the comfort of your own home. The videos are available to buy or rent individually or in collections. Beaumont Etiquette is committed to making its website accessible to all its users. These videos are closed-captioned. We welcome feedback by email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
