Example sentences using "Savoir"

Q: Mostra-me frases de exemplo com " savoir vivre" or "savoir-vivre".
A: Hello!

I have actually never heard of this word before. I looked it up and it's French for "knowing how to live", or manners.

It's a noun, an example using it would be "I admire my mom because she lives her life with incredible savoir-vivre"

The dash seems like it's optional. Although I believe with the dash it's American, and without it's British, but I could be wrong. Sorry if this was not what you were looking for!
