Dining Etiquette East vs West (Visitors & New Immigrants Must See)

Dining Etiquette East vs West
When I first came to America, I wish I had watched a video like this. A few times I felt embarrassed not because of my own culture but because I did not have the chance to learn some things ahead of time and sometimes I failed to notice the cultural differences.
Living in a country where you did not grow up is very tough especially if you fail to observe culture norms. This video is not intended to look down on anyone’s heritage, and I hope you watch it lightheartedly. Please share it with people who you think may have issues similar to mine! It is a must for visitors & new Immigrants. Remember first impressions are very important and small things also matter.
Thank you.
