How old are you? I have to say I'm pretty jealous of your collection of languages. You've got most of the ones I want to learn!

Depends where she learned it. AFAIK, the language taught in schools is simply AN with some local pronunciation features and vocabulary. I would think if there's anywhere in Belgium you'll hear Standard Dutch spoken, it would be Brussels.

Wow, quite the collection of locations! I grew up in Western Washington St. and have spent maybe a total of 3 years in Southern Oregon. Currently reside in Eastern Wa. St.

Due to my maternal geneological meanderings and searching I can say with authority I am: Cherokee/Choctaw, German (Hesse) and Danish (Copenhagen) with some English :)

I was born in Hong Kong and grew up there. I've been living in Australia on and off since year 2000. Now residing in Sydney.

Although Hong Kong is a concrete jungle in urban areas, you will be surprised to know that 80% of the total area of Hong Kong is still green with many country parks in the rural areas. Visitors can go hiking and cycling to experience to other side of Hong Kong, other than indulging in the well-known towers of shopping malls.
