Workshop offers hints and tips
A recent survey by 999 Magazine found that 72 per cent of individuals polled had very little knowledge of the local culture. But as the Holy Month approaches, knowledge of local culture, traditions and etiquette is essential for anyone operating in the UAE. Eton Institute, experts in language and professional development training, is offering a helping hand with free Ramadan Etiquette workshops. These two-hour sessions, one in Dubai and one in Abu Dhabi, will teach courteous behaviour, helpful Arabic expressions and etiquette for Ramadan. Manon Hazell, marketing manager at Eton Institute, said: “With the increasing number of people from around the world choosing to live and work in the UAE, there is a bigger responsibility for them to be familiar with the culture and traditions as a gesture of respect towards the local population.” The workshops will take place today from 5-7pm at Conference Room 3, Block 1, Dubai Knowledge Park and also at twofour54 Building, Park Rotana Complex. Eton Institute also offers a handy Ramadan App with mosque locator, daily prayer and Iftar timings and much more.
