Describe a polite person that you know. You should say:
Who he/she is
How you know him/her
What he/she is like
And explain why you think he/she is polite
I feel great to be surrounded by well-mannered friends as I really aim to make friends with people who are respectful and kind. Whenever I’m with them, I feel like I’m also a very good person, and it encourages me to improve myself for the better as well.
Anyway, in our circle, we have a friend who was originally brought up in Japan, his name is Yuya. He’s actually half-blooded, his mom is Japanese and his dad is Filipino. He’s actually the most polite among us. Every time we meet up for lunch or dinner, he never fails to bow as it’s his way of showing his respect to us all. I really like that gesture as I find it unique which is very different from our own culture.
Also, I’ve noticed that he avoids butting in during our discussion or conversation, he always makes sure to let the other person finish talking first before speaking. That I believe is very important to avoid misunderstanding, confusion, or any conversation-related problem. In our culture, interfering with someone is acceptable to some extent, especially when you need to correct what someone is saying. But for our friend, he never does that.
In addition, he doesn’t directly say ‘no’, and I learned that in their culture, they avoid rejecting someone or something outright because they don’t want to offend or make someone feel bad. They care about the other person’s feelings. It was really hard for us his friends to understand him in the beginning, however, as time went by, we learned how to feel when he doesn’t like something but can’t say no to us directly. Having him as our friend, who has a very different culture makes us learn the importance of politeness or respect and that helps us make our bond stronger.
