During our first meeting we will decide which Unesco Heritage sites we are going to make a study about.
you can see the powerpoint presentation that my Dutch students have made about the biggest and still working steam waterpumpingstation in the world: the ir. D.F. Woudagemaal (= waterpumping-station) in Friesland, which is a province in the north of the Netherlands. My students have made this presentation for students from foreign countries who are going to visit this famous waterpumping station in the Netherlands. Please take a look at their interesting presentation and if you have any questions, please ask them to my students. They just like to give you more information!The ir. D.F. Woudagemaal in Lemmer (Friesland) is the biggest, still working, steam waterpumping-system in the world! And...........on the list of the Unesco World Heritage Sites
