  2. Why don’t Chinese people eat bread for dinner?
  3. Why is it so loud when Chinese people eat?
  4. Why are Chinese parents so money oriented?
  5. Why is education in the Chinese culture so stressful and painful?

Article entries are divided into categories:

  1. Eating Etiquette
  2. Living Etiquette
  3. Language
  4. Proverbs
  5. Feature articles

  1. Thank you for all the valuable information you have in your website. Now I can just refer my non-Chinese friends to visit you. It saves me the trouble of constantly explaining myself. The fact is I am not aware when I behave in Chinese manner because I spent my first 19 years of my life in Chinese society, Hong Kong. Now I can also tell my son to go to you to learn more about how to be Chinese. He is 24 years old and has been in Canada all his life.
    Your work is really necessary. Please continue.
