Restaurant Trip Tips

FUN FACTS

Did you know it is acceptable to belch and slurp your food in China? In Japan, leaving a bite of rice in your bowl is a polite way to say, “Seconds, please.” Eating with your hands is proper in Kenya, though you should remember to use your left hand. And in France, your bread does not go on a plate, but is placed directly on the tablecloth. Manners vary from country to country (sometimes even by household!), and can be a fun way to compare cultures and their attitudes toward food. When taking your students out for a meal, try discussing the purpose of etiquette rules, who created them, and how they differ from culture to culture.
