Personal comments
Belgium in terms of languages is pretty interesting and complicated. I speak french, but I found out that french is only useful in certain parts of Belgium, while in others only flemish will do. However, most people understand english and spanish and are happy to try to speak them.

The market in the "gare du midi/zuid" on sundays is great to buy fruit and food in general. Cheaper and fresher than supermarkets!!!

Final comments
If you want to travel cheaper, there are busses that are cheaper than trains to go to places like Amsterdam and Paris, but it takes longer. Try to leave in a big street, its much safer specially if you are a girl and intend to walk home alone at night. If you are comming for a full year, get an "abonnement" for the tram, metro and busses, it will save you 100's of euros in transport.
