Web Chat Bonenkai Year-End Party at

World Without Borders in Los Angeles

Practical English students of Professor Steve McCarty

at Kagawa Junior College in Japan meet people in other

countries by real-time chat to introduce the Japanese custom

of Bonenkai or year-end parties to forget the old year.

The first-ever Internet Bonenkai was held on December 18th, 1998.

The second annual party is scheduled for Friday, December 17th, 1999

from 3:00-4:30 p.m. Japan time, which is Thursday, December 16th

from 10:00-11:30 p.m. in California where the chat room is.

All are welcome to join the party. With java-enabled Netscape or

Internet Explorer 3 or 4, first visit World Without Borders by

clicking on the icon below. Type in your nickname and a password

(write them on paper also to remember them in the future).

The first time only, click on "register." After that, always

click on "login" after entering your nickname and password.

There are several chat rooms in World Without Borders,

so make sure you enter the right room for the party.

After a successful login, click on "The Rainforest."

See you there!
