(Level: Intermediate to Upper-Intermediate / B1 to B2 / ** to ***)
Here is first a short film (partly in Dutch with English subtitles) (*) in three parts that is really worth watching before any visit to Ypres!
In this programme you can get to know more about Ypres such as:
- its strategic position on the Front Line (hence its complete destuction);
- the incredible number of unexploded bombs, mortars, grenades... which are still being collected today in the fields around by the Belgian explosives disposal service;
- the chemical weapons which were used there for the first time;
- the Menin Gate, the military cemeteries and the Last Post;
