Here are a few rules I practice in America. There are many Americans that do not follow these rules.


Do not speak while chewing your food

Do not reach over another person's plate

Wait until everyone has food in front of them before you begin to eat

Do not place elbows on table

Jess and Kraut,Thank you.  Nowdays there are not so many reles to follow.

Perhaps at a formal dinner,the most inportant table manners in China are the followings:

1. Seats order

2.When u toast to others, ur glass cant be higher than the one whom u toast to.

Actually i dont like people smoking when having dinner

Germany is similar to Jess. Added: no smoking while others are still eating.


In China it's no problem to:

Eat with open mouth

Talk with food in mouth


Smoke while others eat

Spit food on the table

Use the table cloth as wrighting pad
