This January, a European Etiquette Training Center was opened in Beijing. It mainly focuses on teaching girls about western etiquette. A 10-week course costs CNY 80000 and another 12-week course costs CNY 120000.

No.1 She is teaching them to drink soup gracefully.

I think many women like to pay. After all it is cheaper than study at CKGSB

Yes. Those who take this course must be very wealthy. I guess that many of them are upstarts. They didn't get good education. Now they want to make themselves more cultured.

Give me 80000 and I will invite a real European to give you lessons.

I wouldn't give RMB100 to learn how to eat the European way. Every nation has its own culture, though not wrong to learn but protocol is meant for aristocrats and not a layperson like me. BBQQ, maybe you can start a course for foreigners of Chinese fine dining, how to use the chopsticks properly, what clothes they should wear during dinner, how to take food from the table, etc., instead of black tie dinner.

In international four-star (and above) hotels, we don't have to learn how to arrange the glass, water goblet, fork, spoon, knife and napkin. All will be arranged by the said establishment.

Wan,

I won't be a good teacher. Although I am a girl, I don't eat like girls. You do not know that I am the one who eat the fastest in my company. I am afraid that foreigners will have stomach problems if they learn from me.

A warning, BBQQ. Most faster eaters are fat. My long years' obersavation. Supported by theory also.
