In Flanders people speak Dutch. When you come to live in Flanders, you should learn Dutch. Otherwise it will become very difficult to integrate. When you can speak Dutch, you will be able to find work, do a training course and make contact with, for example, your neighbours and your children’s school.
In Brussels, Dutch and French are the official languages. Knowledge of Dutch is a great advantage because not everyone in Brussels speaks Dutch. People who live in Brussels and speak Dutch can find a job more easily.
