It’s not easy to express what you want, get what you need or share your opinion politely in a foreign language, especially if your bank of vocabulary is not that big.  In this chat, Nicoletta discusses her 5 Useful Tips for Being Polite.  Here she gives you really functional words and phrases to use in different situations which will help you say what you mean without being…mean or rude.
