Finnish Sauna – level 1

23-12-2020 15:00

UNESCO is a very important organization. UNESCO makes a list of buildings and traditions. It helps protect them for future generations. UNESCO puts new things on the list every year.

The Finnish sauna gets on the list this year. The Finnish sauna is a part of Finland’s culture. It is thousands of years old. Almost every person goes to a sauna in Finland. The sauna makes people healthier. It is a good way to relax, too. About three million saunas are in Finland.

35 things get to the list in 2020. The things are a part of a country’s culture. These things are, for example, Czech glass products and Japanese art from wood.

Difficult words: generation (all the people who are born at about the same time), list (things that are similar in a way, and people write them together on a piece of paper), sauna (a small room which is very hot and people sit inside and relax).

You can watch the original video in the Level 3 section.
