  • You can't eat soup with chopsticks. Here's a spoon.

  • Wouldn't you have more success with a spoon?

    play icon

The first answer is quite direct and instead of asking the child, you are telling them that they cannot eat soup with chopsticks. And then you can hand them a spoon. The second answer in more fun, and hopefully they would use a spoon after seeing their mistake.
例文①は、単刀直入な言い方です。スープにお箸を使うのはNGということを命じています。その後、お子さんにスプーンを手渡します。例文②は「スプーンを使った方が成功率高いんじゃない?」とユーモアを交えた伝え方です。お子さんが間違いに気づき、スプーンを使い始めると良いですね。

  • Why not try a spoon - it's much easier?

Well, it may be tempting to allow the child to continue using chopsticks and let them work out for themselves the best way to drink soup from a bowl. If they look at other people using spoons, it is a simple process to adopt the same drinking style for themselves. Furthermore, soup is drunk, not eaten. If it is so thick that it requires chewing or use of teeth, then it is either a broth or a stew, not a soup.
そうですね、お子さんがお箸を使ってスープが飲めるようになるまでチャレンジさせてあげたいと思うかもしれませんね。他の人がスプーンを使ってスープを飲むところを見れば、同じ方法でスープを飲むことをすぐに覚えるでしょう。それと、スープは飲むものであり、食べるものではありません。もし液体がとても濃厚で、噛んだり、歯を使うようであれば、それはスープではなく、シチューまたは煮汁(ストック)です。

  • Use a spoon when drinking your soup. It is much easier and better than chopsticks.

  • Chopsticks aren't for soup. We use spoons.

There are soups that are thick in consistency with lumps of meat or vegetables inside that would make using a chopsticks logical but all in all, spoons are the utensils to be used when eating or drinking a soup. When you clarify to your child by saying "Spoons are for soup and not chopsticks" they will understand your meaning and refer to using spoons. Hope this helps!
お肉または野菜のかたまりなどが入っているとろみのあるスープを食べるときは、お箸を使うのも合理的かもしれませんが、やはり、スープにはスプーンを使いますよね。「スープには、お箸でなく、スプーンを使う」ことをお子さんにはっきり伝えれば、お子さんもお母さんが言うことを理解し、スプーンを使うようになるのではないでしょうか。お役に立てれば幸いです。

  • Eating soup with a spoon is a lot easier than with chopsticks.

There is always certain kinds of utensils that are easier to use for different kinds of meals. Some people prefer chopsticks, some prefer spoons, etc. Many times with soup dishes, it is easier to use a spoon instead of chopsticks. If you want to talk about this, you can use some expressions such as: 1) It is easier to eat soup with a spoon. 2) Eating soup with a spoon is a lot easier than with chopsticks.
様々な料理を食べるために、常に使いやすい台所用具がいくつかあります。 お箸を好む人がいれば、スプーンを好む人もいます。 スープ料理には、いつでもお箸よりスプーンの方が使いやすいでしょう。 これについて話したい場合、下記のような表現が使えます。 1) It is easier to eat soup with a spoon. スープは、スプーンを使うと食べやすいです。 2) Eating soup with a spoon is a lot easier than with chopsticks. スープは、お箸よりスプーンの方がはるかに食べやすいです。

  • This dish is best eaten with a spoon.

  • A spoon will make it easier to eat your soup.

  • Eat your soup with a spoon not chopsticks.

Every meal has a specific cutlery that is best to use when eating. Some meals are best enjoyed with a fork eg, spaghetti and fries. Other meals like soup need a spoon to eat To explain that soup should be eaten using a spoon, use the sentences above to help you. specific: particular, special "I struggle to eat spaghetti with a spoon because it is best eaten with a fork."
それぞれの食べ物にはそれに合った食器がありますね。 スパゲティやフライドポテトのようにフォークの方が食べやすいものもあれば、スープのようにスプーンの方が食べやすいものもあります。 スープはスプーンの方が食べやすいと説明したいなら、上記の文が使えます。 specific: 特定の、特別な "I struggle to eat spaghetti with a spoon because it is best eaten with a fork."(スパゲッティはフォークの方が食べやすい。スプーンだとなかなかすくえない)

  • "Use the spoon to drink your soup and your chopsticks to eat the vegetables and/or meat."

If the soup is clear, with little vegetables and/or meat, it would be impossible for your child to eat soup with a set of chopsticks. A spoon would be the only way to go. However, if there were some larger pieces of vegetables and/or meat in the soup, then your child can have the best of both worlds, because he/she can use the spoon to drink the liquid and then use the chopsticks to pick out the pieces of vegetables and/or meat.
具(野菜・肉)がほとんどないスープの場合、箸で食べることはできませんね。スプーンしか使えません。スープに大きな具が入っているなら、どちらも使うことができます。汁を飲むときにはスプーンを使い、具を食べるときには箸が使えます。

  • Why don't you try using a spoon?

  • It's much easier to eat soup with a spoon.

1) Why don't you try using a spoon? A gentler and easier way of recommending the other person to use a spoon, by explaining that the task will be more successful. 2) It's much easier to eat soup with a spoon. A clear way to point out that, without using a spoon the task will be much more difficult.
1) Why don't you try using a spoon?(スプーンを使ってごらん) これはシンプルな言い方です。スプーンの方が食べやすいと優しく勧めています。 2) It's much easier to eat soup with a spoon.(スープはスプーンの方がずっと食べやすいよ) スプーンを使った方がずっと楽だとストレートに伝えています。
