Jean-Paul, let me add that Brussels traditionally would be a Flemish-Dutch speaking part of Belgium. North-African immigrants combined with a minor contribution by the EU-institutions changed the language in the center of the city to French. For the Flemish part of the population Brussels city center turned at least into a "no-speak-zone" a long time ago.
