The dutch language resulted from the begining really dificult for me because it is a germanic language and I understand better the latin languages. This is the reason why I spoke and communicate most of the time in english, although I learned basic things in a lot of languages...including greek!. Is very nice to know similarities and differences of your own language in comparison with other languages.

English is generally spoken in the University but the community speaks Dutch. The biggest challenge come at shopping because I didn't speak dutch too well

Most of the people spoke English which was very good. Only older people didn't but I could interact with them in Dutch or they would try everything to make understandable. Also the University provided Dutch courses not compulsory for everyone interested in.

Due to it was an English Program, we chose the posibility to learn french instead of flemish. By the way, everybody was able to speak very good English.
