Table manners between the westerners and Chinese are quite different:
1 .Chinese use chopsticks, but the westerners use knives and forks.
2. In China all the dishes are placed on the table and everyone shares. However,in western countries each one has his own plate of food in front of him.
3. The Chinese hosts like to put food into the plates of their guests to show friendship and politeness. But the westerners don't do that.
4. Chinese people like to over-order food, for they think it will not be good and polite to have all the food eaten out. But the western people like to order as much food as they need.
5. The Chinese hosts and guests always vie with one another in paying bill to show their hospitality. But the westerners like going Dutch.
