I'm watching Unité 42 on Netflix and noticed something puzzling. I have always labored under the assumption that Belgians spoke both French and Flemish fluently. In one scene, though, the police are questioning a government official who is speaking in (I think?) Flemish, and the older cop has to translate it into French for the younger cop. Don't they learn both languages in school? And what's the significance of a government official not speaking a language all 3 people understand?
