Les Petits Diplomates: etiquette training for childrenIt was 9:30 a.m. when the course was starting and four boys and eight girls wearing nametags all swiveled nervously in their chairs lined in a "U" shape. Aged between 8 and 12, the kids were attending a three-hour savoir vivre workshop entitled "Les Petits Diplomates" given by trainer Joumana Piglowski, managing director of Chateau Marianne, an event-management company that organizes French-themed events.The session, given in French, started out with learning proper greetings, as every child was asked to come up in front of the class and greet Piglowski with "Bonjour!"The cost per child for "Les Petits Diplomates" is $95, which includes the workshop, a certificate, snacks for children and parents, and one free entrance to KidzMondo, the educational theme park for children at Beirut Waterfront. Parents can attend the workshop as observers.
