Some acquaintances who moved to France, once they got there, they have attended some French classes in which they were paid a monthly quota in order to, as said, learn the language and to integrate somehow within French society. They have EU citizenship
Is there a same thing in Belgium? I know a little bit of French but I'd like to do likewise before getting a job there, so I'm asking, is there something similar in Belgium? Are there courses in which attendants are paid a monthly quota or something like that?
Moreover, one of my friends there told me that any non-belgian EU citizen is granted at the beginning a 3-month permit, and within that related period, the person has to work at least one day, and after having satisfied this condition then they are granted, at the expiry of the permit, another 5-year permit.
If that is the case, can one day of lesson be considered as one day of work?
Note that I hold EU citizenship so I have little problems concerning papers and the like.
