FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

  • Is Balissande an etiquette school?

    Although Balissande teaches etiquette, Balissande is not an etiquette school. It is a finishing school. It covers all the subjects that are necessary to refine women.

  • How are the courses taught?

    The courses are taught completely online and in written format. They are not podcasts or video classes. They are written tutorials that you can open and read at anytime and in any place around the world via the internet. For demonstration purposes, a small number of videos and images have been included in each course.

  • Why are the courses taught in written format?

    We use the traditional written format over verbal to teach our courses because we believe students learn more from written formats. Also, there is so much more information, experiences, and tips we can share in written formats. We could never hope to discuss them all in a video. Most of our courses are very detailed, offering information you will not find anywhere on the internet.

  • Can you send me a copy of the curriculum?

    Currently, we do not provide detailed copies of our curriculum to prospective students. To see a curriculum for a desired course, you must enroll in the course. To see an overview, please click on the course you desire and scroll down until you reach the curriculum section.

  • What is the advantage of learning finishing skills online?

    The advantage of learning refinement online with Balissande Finishing School is that you can study it at anytime via the internet, anywhere in the world. You do not have to uproot your home for months at a time. If you work or attend university, you can continue to do so while studying with us, getting the best teaching the internet can provide. You can adapt our courses to fit your schedule, shortening or lengthening it. We provide a very flexible way for you to learn.

  • Can our courses really make a difference in your life?

    Yes, they definitely can; and in many ways. Ladies who display good manners and elegant deportment are poised and dignified. They impress immediately, engendering a certain awe, admiration, fascination, and respect in others. These ladies are graceful and confident, knowing the proper behaviour, mannerisms, practices, and dress codes needed for each event. They know what is expected of them, what is the correct thing to do and say, what is the most effective way to present themselves; so, they become calm, dignified and well-poised. This enables them to effortlessly mingle with the most cultured people; thus being welcomed and admired in the highest circles of business and society. So, in our courses, we discuss many things. We cover etiquette rules as well as techniques and practices that you can use to impress and achieve these goals. You will discover ideas that will change your life and the way you see society and wealth.

  • Are the courses easy?

    The ease depends on the person. The more knowledge you have on the subject, the easier it will be. Each subject contains many rules and variables. So learning them will not be a one day effort. You will need to schedule time to study and practice every week, just like with any traditional course. Please do not enroll if you do not have a passion for refinement or do not have the time to study. The courses we offer will require a lot of time and effort from you.

  • Who studies at Balissande Finishing School?

Some come for marriage reasons, wanting to refine themselves in order to attract wealthy men, to help their partner advance professionally, or to gain acceptance from their partner's social network and family.

“I recommend the ladies at Balissande Finishing School. I finished my bespoke course a few weeks ago and am satisfied at the results. Due to the fact I am male, I didn't get the full service. I was only able to get etiquette lessons. I hope they will hire a man soon so I can also sign up for a deportment course. ”
