If you’re looking for a real international study abroad experience, you need look no further WTTS takes you to Belgium. A small country, with a big cultural history, Belgium is home to over 10 million people. It’s also the place that the European Union (EU) and the North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO) call home. Officially known as the Kingdom of Belgium, it is a low-lying country of Western Europe, having land borders with Germany, Luxembourg, France and the Netherlands.
Belgium can be roughly divided into two separate areas, the northern, Dutch speaking area of Flanders and the southern, French speaking area of Wallonia. Even though its capital, Brussels, sits within the Flanders area, it is a bilingual area, with most residents speaking both languages fluently. Belgium is a densely populated country, and is a welcoming environment for international students.
