Our presenter was William Wade, exchange student newly returned from a year in Belgium. He said “I left Belgium but Belgium will never leave me” His first host family were Muslims from Morocco. The country needed coal miners, so they asked the Moroccans to emigrate. His favorite foods in country were couscous, Belgian fries, waffles, and chocolate. He visited every part of the country using cheap bus and train tickets. He attended local schools but found it difficult to understand the teachers because he spoke little French. He had 12 different classes which rotated throughout the week. He travelled to Paris, Luxembourg, and the Netherlands. Now he’s back and needs a full-time job so contact him if you know of one.
