Work­shop of­fers hints and tips

7 Days in Dubai - - LIFE -

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.
