*******************

This is for the members with advanced reading skills.

I usually read Japanese news on Nikkei (Nihon Keizai Shinbun 日本経済新聞、日経)website   www.nikkei.com, and the following article gave me an idea of making it a meetup. I have many beginner level learners, but also have quite a few advanced learners. This meetup should help them in acquiring new Japanese vocabulary for current affairs.

"日本の米国債保有額が最高に 首位中国に迫る

9月、6カ月連続増

2012/11/17 7:16

【NQNニューヨーク=川内資子】米財務省が16日発表した9月の国際資本統計(対米証券投資動向)によると、同月末時点の日本による米財務省証券(短期債を含む)の保有額は6カ月続けて増加し、前月末比0.7%増の1兆1307億ドル(約91兆円)だった。国・地域別で保有額首位の中国との差は248億ドルと前月の324億ドルから一段と縮まった。

日本の保有額は、統計がさかのぼれる2000年以降で最高を更新した。中国の保有額は前月末から微増の1兆1555億ドルだった。過去最高となった11年7月の1兆3149億ドルから、1594億ドル減少している。

3位の中東などの石油輸出国合計は2670億ドル。4位は2505億ドルのブラジルだった。"

OK, if you'd like to attend, please do some homework - try to translate and write down questions to ask me at the meetup.

The venue will be announced soon.

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
