It's an awesome lesson. Definitely a must for all chopsticks learners.

Lol, that was awesome, especially after the “Advanced lessons” course.
'Gay pride' chopstick pulling was the best. Thanks Eunice, you never fail to amuse us! :D

Hehe… I only see one way of holding chopsticks in this video. I hold them that way when I use them. I've noticed the local Koreans hold them crossed in their hand, a technique I have yet to master.

Oh, and holding a whole chicken leg using chopsticks while eating it tends to freak the tourists out. %)

Ah, I always hold my chopsticks crossed style. I notice Chinese hold them in two styles, either separated style like this Japanese video or the crossed style. I find the separated style is harder to use than the crossed style. That's probably because I'm used to eating the crossed style.

I hold mine in the style of the video, not crossed. But I short of have two fingers on each stick. I've been using them since I was six.

I've eaten ice cream and picked up water glasses with chopsticks. (Usually only around my family, though.)

While I was staying in Japan, I was complemented on how well I used chopsticks a lot. It happened a lot, so it sort of bothered me. Sometimes I'd get back at those people by telling them that they use a fork very well.

Pretty funny

I remember going to a japanese steakhouse with coworkers and they were astounded that I could use chopsticks. They're like “Oh it's so hard” and I was like “yeah, if you're retarded”

I eat with the separated style, for some reason my hands get cramped after a while, so id shift to utensils halfway through the meal. so much for first impressions.

Heheh, that was funny.

Chopsticks are easy to eat with once you get the hang of it.

This year, school's full of BS!!!

A chinese person taught me how to use them. As a result I can use them as easy a fork.

Fenrir says Grrrrrr!
