I posted the following sentences 3 days ago, but got no response. Are they natural English?
Chopsticks are a special tableware which originated in ancient China about 4,000 years ago. The use of chopsticks has been a part of Chinese food culture. While chopsticks are ubiquitous utensils throughout much of Asia, many westerners are interested in but also puzzled about how to use it with facility.

I'm not a teacher, but I write for a living. Please don't ask me about 2nd conditionals, but I'm a safe bet for what reads well in (American) English.
I agree with all Barb's corrections but I would change the final word of your piece to "ease". In BrE, we don't do something "with facility". We do it "with ease" or "easily".
Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
