When invited to an American home…
Here are a few tips to help you know how to behave at an American dinner. First of all, you should always arrive on time. Even 15 minutes late is impolite! If you are going to be late, call your host or hostess ahead of time. It is always nice to bring your host or hostess something such as flowers, but it is not necessary.
When in the dining room, don’t take a seat until host or hostess shows you where to seat. Unfold the napkin that is beside your plate, and put it on your lap. Bowls of food are usually passed from person to person around the table. People serve themselves.
Before eating, someone may say grace, or prayers. During grace you should bow your head and remain silent. You can start eating when the host or hostess does. In America it is considered rude to begin eating before everyone has been served.
Take part in conversation, but don’t talk with your mouth full. If someone asks you a question while your mouth is full, finish chewing before you answer the question.
Do not reach in front of someone for a dish, the salt, or the pepper. Simply say, “ Please pass the salt.”
Always compliment the cook by saying, “The meal is delicious/ wonderful !” When dinner is over, help clear the dishes off the table. When you are leaving, thank your host or hostess by saying, “Thank you for a nice evening. I enjoyed it very much.”
Americans often send a thank-you note afterwards.
