Speaking

In China, strange people always use public chopsticks or public spoons. But, families don’t use public chopsticks or public spoons. I think it is hard to change this habit because they like to share. I think it is good to change this habit. When I together with my family, I can accept to use public spoons, but we share the vegetables or dishes together. I think if we put the dishes into different little bowls or plates for every person, I think it’s better than to use public chopsticks because maybe my parents would think that I don’t like to share with them.

One time one of my classmates maybe he likes to share snacks or food with his friends. One day, when I was eating an apple, he wanted to share my apple. I felt bad. After 10 minutes I went outside to throw the apple away.
