If you doubt the purity of the expressions you use in your everyday communications, there’s great news for you: a reference book of no barriers will help your unconditional politeness out.

For instance, instead of the word ‘pensioner’ one should use the phrase ‘a senior citizen’. To learn more about how you could use female gender-specific titles, please visit this website

The key rule here is ‘to talk first about a person and not about their personality traits’. Mindful of this, we can easily orientate ourselves in everyday communication and minimize the number of possible mistakes.

We hope this website will become a daily assistant for everyone willing to interact in a conscious fashion.
