How to use chopsticks?

Culture - How to use chopsticks?

You should master the art of using chopsticks if you visit China. In every restaurant, you will be provided with chopsticks instead of forks and knives, although forks and knives can usually be provided if requested. Don't be frightened of learning to use the chopsticks since they are easy to use. Use your thumb and the fourth finger to grip one stick and your forefinger and middle finger to grip and control the other stick. After practicing awhile, you will be able to pick up pieces of food. If you are able to pick up a bean with chopsticks, this means that you have "graduated".

Be happy no matter what....
