Belgium in a nutshell

Languages

French, Dutch and German are Belgium's three official languages. An invisible linguistic border divides the country roughly into two parts : the French speaking South and the Dutch-speaking North. There is also a German-speaking community along the German border. Brussels is an important bilingual entity (French-Dutch), with a French-speaking majority. Apart from a few exceptions, the other regions are monolingual

The Climate

The climate may not be the reason why you have chosen to study in Liège. Belgium is known for its changing skies. The climate is often unpredictable. The temperature may vary widely from day to day. Winters are usually mild, and summers usually quite pleasant, if not hot.
