Hi English-speaking new neighbours,
I'd say: join the list, because there are a few more members who speak English and are slowly learning Dutch.
This list is aimed at organising meetings, not at having long conversations online.
We prefer live conversations!
So if there are a few more English speaking members, we might even make the messages bilingual,
that's no big effort.
Then you can understand everything and we can meet up easily.
I have a very good friend in Brussels who also speaks English and I'm sure she'd be delighted to meet new people!
I live in Ghent myself, but our plans with the yahoo-group are to meet regularly in Ghent and Bxl, so that it's close-by for everyone now and then, and a little trip now and then.
So, if you send me your email address, I can invite you directly to the group or you can join by using the link I mentioned above.
