The Flemish dialect is almost identical to Dutch on the Dutch border, but some differences in vocabulary have led some to call the language "Flemish". French is another most common linguistic in Belgium. Nearly 40% of the population speaks French. Many Flemings can also speak French as a second language. Like the Dutch language in Flemish, French dialects are mostly similar in French and French, but the differences in vocabulary and pronunciation are small.
