Western manners are all the rage

Read BBC’s article on how China’s nouveaux riche are learning to behave in an international environment. Good manners are more and more being seen as a status symbol. And there’s so much to learn – how to hold your tea cup, how to pronounce those luxury brands correctly, how to raise children, how to behave at table – the list is never-ending!

all the rage = very stylish or fashionable
nouveaux riche = newly rich (link to: de.urbandictionary.com)
