Personal comments
French speakers, no matter if they´re belgians, french or wathever, are not very opened to foreigners, specially to the ones who don´t speak well their language, so if you manage to have many local friends, think that that is not the usual thing.

Travel as much as you can. Is incredible how near is Belgium from the rest of central Europe (France, Holland, Germany, GB, ...). Inside Belgium use the Gopass, and in Germany the All-weekend included train ticket for regional trips.

Housing
