Languages

Flanders is a region with many foreign influences: the Flemings live at the meeting point of the Germanic north and the Latin south, and have traditionally always been in close contact with other languages and cultures. Like their neighbours to the north, their native tongue is Dutch, a language spoken by 21 million people, making it one of Europe’s medium-sized languages. At school, students learn to speak French and English to a high standard from a very early age. They have a reputation for being excellent at languages, and most Flemish people speak a second or even a third language fairly fluently.
