The link below teaches you how to use chopsticks. If you go to China I would highly recommend you learn to use chopsticks, it is a great way to show respect to the country you are visiting. When you go to China learn the basic language and chopsticks which shows you are interested in the culture and not just a tourist but a traveler. Especially if you go out to different places to eat which you should explore areas outside the tourist traps then you will need chopstick skills and some basic language skills. If the language gets too difficult when ordering then do what we do (even when my wife is from China and speaks the language, she may not know what is fresh and or the restaurant specialty) so just point to items that locals are eating at the restaurant. Chances are that if there is a specialty item that the restaurant is known for then a lot of customers will be eating it so point and enjoy. Once you learn the basic skills for chopsticks practice and practice. My item I used to practice in the past was peanuts because they are small and oily if you can master it you will be just fine in China. The trick is to use light pressure DO NOT try to grab your item with a lot of pressure if you do then it will fall out.
Learn a little skill or language when traveling that’s what it is all about
