In the second part of this interview with Belgian consul Pierre Steverlynck, we discuss the languages he speaks at home and at work – since Belgium is a multilingual country. You’ll learn the difference between an ambassy and a consulate, what a “carte d’identité” may be used for (I know that not all countries have one such thing). Also find out how one becomes a diplomat. And, you’ll hear about the “flying kit”, a really cool system for expats living on faraway islands!
