I'm from the Flemish part of the country. I would like to know if there are more people from this area here. Greetings to all!

I have no choice but to speak French roughly a third of the time at work. So I'm slowly getting there ever since I started working there three years ago. Slowly, mind you XD
And indeed, it's quite the coincedence considering how small of a speck on the map we are ^.^ Lets rejoice!

Great you have some company!
I lived in Holland for almost 6 years and still speak some Dutch (I know that’s not exactly the same thing of course)

It´s not, and most of the time Dutch people make fun of how we speak :P so technically it is the same language, but it's not. Most of the time we can understqnd Dutch people more than they can understand us :D

uhm. I'm lucky that some of my foreign workmates know only English :D

Well... I have a Dutch accent, coming originally from the northern border before moving around Brussels. So I'm both at once XD
