I was giving a presentation to a room full of people at the time, so I couldn't exactly go "uh .... I think you're wrong." But this seemed pretty preposterous to me, that English is taking the place of Dutch as French as the native language of the Belgian youth. My teacher speaks neither French nor Dutch, nor anything other than English, so I felt his linguistic analysis of the situation could be pretty limited, but maybe I'm completely wrong.
Can someone comment? I think I remember some similar discussion ages ago regarding language replacement in Europe ... if someone has the link please comment. Thanks!
