It seems Oriental is doing some good investments for even stronger growth:

"As we announced during the third quarter earnings call, in the fourth fiscal quarter of 2007, we initiated a large-scale, nationwide marketing campaign to encourage enrollments in our summer courses. As a result, our sales and marketing expenses for the fourth fiscal quarter of 2007 increased by 47.7% year-over-year to RMB38.5 million (US$5.0 million) from RMB26.1 million in the corresponding quarter of 2006. Our marketing campaign has in part contributed to the outstanding 31.5% increase year-over-year in language training and test prep enrollments for the quarter."

Oriental is investing in it's brand and the resulting increase in enrollments is impressive.
