How is speaking/using French in Belgium (specifically Brussels) different than in France? Or, maybe there is not too much difference? Or maybe, mostly a difference with the accent? If so, is anyone able to describe this?

I'm going to cheat here a wee bit and post this link to a Wikipedia page, http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Belgicism because to be honest I'm not sure, other than they have an accent and a few other vocabulary changes such as the use different numbers for 70, 80 and 90.
I hope this helps all the same.

Merci beaucoup Marie-Claire. C'était très utile! When I was looking on the page, I noticed a place that said "other languages." When I clicked on it, it took me to a page written in French, that was very comprehensive.
And, you also asked my next question... when you would use soixante-vingt versus huitante, etc.
So, thank-you very much! I appreciate it! :)
