    2. Where did you hear this sentence from? That may help with understanding the meaning. When someone gets a "lesson in manners," it means they are learning to be respectful. However, this phrasing should not be taken literally-- it is a metaphor. 'Scooter firms' is not actually being taught a formal lesson about manners. Instead, it means that they have not been behaving properly in the past, so someone or something in their life is now making them act respectful. An example of this type of metaphor: "Sharon was rude to Ben yesterday. She did not say 'thank you' when he bought her lunch. Today, Ben did not buy her lunch. When Sharon asked why, Ben said that it was because she did not thank him the first time. So from now on, if Sharon does not say thank you, Ben will not do any favors for her. Sharon received a lesson in manners today." You can paraphrase by saying that 'Scooter firms learned to be more respectful'

    2. Etiquette and manners are synonyms, but do have slightly different meanings. Etiquette is a code of polite conduct based on social acceptance and efficiency. Simply, it means to follow rules for efficiently or politeness. Sometimes, rules of etiquette are archaic (old-fashioned) and don't make sense nowadays. For example, it is good etiquette to sit with your back straight. It is good etiquette to not chew loudly when at the dinner table. It is good etiquette to dress neatly for a formal occasion. Etiquette may change in different cultures. For example, it could be good etiquette to chew loudly when eating your food (this is just an example, haha). Manners are polite behaviors that reflect an attitude of consideration, kindness and respect for others. For example, saying "please" and "thank you" are good manners. Saying "excuse me" if you need to get someone's attention instead of shouting rudely is good manners. Not interrupting someone while they are talking is good manners. Good manners are usually universal and don't change in different cultures.

    2. Today, many people like traveling abroad. I think that traveling abroad has many benefits in heping a person grow due to the following two reasons. First, by traveling abroad, people experience intercultural differences such as; manners, housing, and clothes. If it were not for the knowledges about these, they might would come into conflict with local people in foreign countries. Second, trips to foreign countries lead to understanding more of oneself. In particular, traveling alone gives travelers time to be alone and meditate. This is something that they can’t do often when they have busy lives. Understanding oneself would make one’s life more comfortable and possibly less stressful as well. Therefore, for these two reasons, knowing intercultural differences and the understanding of oneself, I think that traveling abroad helps a person grow.

    2. Bad Translations You can see some bad translations anywhere. It sometimes has* adverse effects on other people. For example, nowadays, one althlete took an* interview, but the contents of it was translated differently by one media group*. The media made an* article based on the translation of the interview, and the contents of it caused controvercy. Later, the media apologised for posting* the article, which depended on untrue (you could use false instead of untrue) information. This is an example of bad translations having the possilbility of harming others. Plus, bad translations also sometimes makes someone get lost. (Or, "Plus, bad translations sometimes mislead people.") One recent survey shows that there are some signs in stations which do not translate adequately. I heard news that one foreign couple could not have moved to a different train, because the routes that the sign showed was different form other signs, so it took far more time to change trains. In addition, I have a experience of having been asked by foreign tourists which routes should they take. They also said that there are some mistranslations in Japan, and they feel awkward when they hear unnatural English. For instance, he heard “How do you think?” and he felt offended. Generally, it is rude to use that phrase, and you may have some trouble communicating with foreign people without knowing such manners. Considering things mentioned above, you have to be imprudent before translating or using phrases.

    2. It's pretty good, but I polished up a few sentences to make them sound more natural: At this cafe, you can wear a high-quality kimono and enjoy drinking matcha in a traditional tea ceremony. You can learn tea ceremony manners and observe how matcha is made in the traditional way. While this service doesn't include making matcha yourself, it is still a great activity for international tourists. You can leave the cafe to walk around to other sightseeing places for a small fee of 500 yen per 15 minutes, which is much cheaper than other kimono rental shops. However, you need to purchase both the tea ceremony and the rental fees.
