A firm in Shenzhen recently posted an ad for the opening of a
luxury training course, claiming that by spending several thousand
yuan, girls can be taught all the etiquette required for marrying
the rich, the Nanfang Daily reported.
The company's office is located in an apartment house that has
four bedrooms and two sitting rooms, and can be used for both
commercial and residential purposes. There are only a few desks and
chairs placed inside the office and several people working behind
The company's general manager Wu Jintao explained to our
reporter about his idea of opening the luxury course. He said that
nowadays, many girls longed to marry rich people, whereas on the
other hand many outstanding rich people couldn't find the
appropriate person to tie the knot with. Therefore they have
decided to open this "diamond training class", which aims to
educate women of fine breeding, so that they all will become "fair
ladies" after graduation.
The training class is divided into 10 sectors, including taste
and quality, charm cultivation, household affairs management, etc.
The fees for the training range from 20,000 yuan to 50,000 yuan.
Girls who pass the examination tests of these 10 sectors are
supposed to be qualified for marrying the rich. The company even
commits to do the matchmaking for the trainees.
So far, however, not many people have applied to attend the
course. Wu Jintao admitted that since they opened the course a
month ago, nobody had registered for the entire class, although
some girls had applied for some individual sectors taught on
Wu claimed that nearly 100 people had phoned for consultation.
However, in all the three hours staying in the office our reporter
didn't hear the telephone on the desk ring at all.
