These arrangements provide opportunities to practise and increase the rate of progress in English Language Learning – “If you don’t speak you don’t eat!”

Politeness is expected from you in return. Try to always say, “Please”, “Thank you”, “Excuse me”, “Good morning/ Afternoon/ Evening” – these are used a lot in the UK!
