Challenge 6: Learn to use Chopsticks

[youtube http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5Y9HO-c0dxU]

Eating with chopsticks takes some practice, but if you visit China to do business then you will most likely eat at some point (food is a very important part of Chinese culture).

While the Chinese understand that westerners may not be comfortable with chopsticks, and will provide forks if needed (though not all restaurants, particularly the smaller ones, will have them), it is polite to have a go and an easy way to impress your hosts.

So, get hold of some chopsticks from the Chinese supermarket and get practicing! You don’t need to be eating Chinese food – try it on any meal…
