Jane please see my comments of your exercise in blue. You are showing a lot of improvements. However, pay more attention to the basics. Every sentence should have a subject, a verb and an object. Also try to avoid abbreviations like can't, shouldn't etc, Such is not acceptable in formal writing or an examination. You will lose marks. Spell them out in full. Finally, please try to treat your readers as a third person rather than a 2nd person, i.e. use one instead if you, for example, one should not point chopsticks....... instead of you should not...because it seems you are ordering the reader to do or not do something and the reader usually is your teacher who scores your papers. Again you will lose marks. I think your teacher does not like being ordered. You may submit your papers as quickly as you like and I will review them as quickly as I can.

If wines are served with a meal, rice must be served to each person after everybody finishes his drinks. If one does not drink, he should tell his guest before the meal. As a common practice, a host will serve his guests some teas usually at another room. It is good manner that one should not leave immediately after a meal.
