Do they speak English in Brussels?

Hey there!

In Brussels, English is pretty widely spoken, especially in areas like the European Quarter, where international institutions and expat communities thrive. For daily interactions, you'll find that many people, particularly in businesses and public services, are comfortable communicating in English. In more touristy spots or areas with diverse communities, English tends to be quite prevalent. However, in more local or residential neighborhoods, you might encounter more French or Dutch (the other official language of Belgium) speakers. Overall, though, you can usually get by just fine with English in Brussels!
