How to use chopsticks

■ How to use chopsticks

1). The first chopstick

Place the first chopstick so that thicker part rests at the base of your thumb and the thinner part rests on the lower side of your third fingertip.

2). The second chopstick

Bring your thumb forward so that it traps the stick firmly in place.
Now position the second chopstick so that it is held between your index finger and middle finger by the end of your thumb.

3). Move

Place a little pressure on the top chopstick. It will pivot on your index finger just above the second knuckle. Remember: the bottom chopstick is stationary.

4). A series of movements

The tip of the top chopstick will move towards the tip of the bottom chopstick. Hold those tips together firmly enough to grasp a piece of food and lift it off the plate.
