BELGIUM – some background
Belgium first appeared on maps of Europe in 1831 as a buffer state between the Kingdom of the Netherlands and France. It is comprised of three main regions: Dutch-speaking Flanders, French-speaking Wallonia and the capital city of Brussels, which is officially a bilingual region, located within the territory of Flanders.
Modern Belgium is a monarchy with King Albert II as the head of state, but there are long-standing tensions between the Dutch or Flemish-speaking community and the French-speaking community. There is also a small German-speaking region near the German border.
Pupils should be aware of which region they are in when thinking about which language to use. French should be used in shops and restaurants when we are in Tournai and Brussels. Most French-speakers in Belgium will speak only French. However, when we are visiting Bruges (Brugge) and Ypres (Ieper), pupils should use English, or try and use some greetings in Flemish. Although almost everybody in Flanders can speak French as well as Flemish (and English), they would prefer not to speak French as it is not their language.
In Wallonia, signs and information are only in French, in Flanders they are only in Flemish and it is only in Brussels where bilingual signs are the norm. As such it is useful to be able to recognise basic information and signs in both languages. Some Flemish words are like Scots words and it is quite a guttural language e.g kerk – church [kirk].

    • Vimy Ridge – Scene to a military engagement between the Canadian Corps

and the German Sixth Army which lasted from the 9th to the 12th of April

1917. The result was an Allied victory, and a portion of the site remains preserved

as a memorial for the 3,598 Canadians killed. It is unknown how many Germans died.

We will then travel for one hour back to Ypres; Belgium, where pupils will visit:

Tynecot Cemetery
Tyne Cot Cemetery – This is the largest cemetery for Commonwealth forces in the world. The area was captured by the 3rd Australian Division and the New Zealand Division, on 4th of October 1917 and two days later a cemetery for the British and Canadian dead was begun. Although the site was recaptured by Germans, and then liberated by the Belgians, the cemetery was assigned to the United Kingdom in perpetuity by King Albert I of Belgium in recognition of the sacrifices made by the British Empire in the defence and freedom of Belgium. 02tynecot09.jpg
