I think the Academy actually offers a language course for forgeign students so you probably wouldn't have to go that route if you get accepted Mutterlein.

Why is Dutch/Flemish so difficult? For me,the dialect was very familiar in pronunciation as English so I learned alot of words. If I had stayed longer than three months,I probably could have spoke full sentences.

Yah, isn't Dutch, English's closest relative?

I think that's the school. I'm not sure if the school itself is on Nationalstraat, but the museum is.

Here is the link for the museum (it also contains the link for the school).

Yea, I love Antwerp too. I've been there twice and I definitely will go again.

Now you are REALLY making me want to go. Next time I'm going to Paris (which always means that I'm going to Antwerp too) - I'll make sure it's sale season, so I can raid Ann's boutique (and Louis, and Dries, and Verso, and etc,etc,etc...)!

Well, I went there for Dirk Bikkimbergs whose first line is next to impossible to get in NYC. I can get HL cheap here

I just like everything about Antwerp - it's cozy, yet everything is in place, culture, fashion, beer, chocolate. It has a wonderful strip of modern architecture along the river, and plenty of old architecture. It has a decent night life, nothing like NYC, but I enjoyed Velvet Lounge and Little Buddha. It's a stone throw from Amsterdam, Paris, London. What else does one need? I wanna mooooooooooooove!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Boy, do you know if Dirk B. opened his store in Antwerp yet? I know Veronique Branqhuino was opening one last time I was there. Is Raf ever planning to open a store? His accessories are impossible to find!!!

Isn't Carol Chrisitan Poell is also from Antwerp.. love his stuff too.. so beautiful and poetic... When I was in Netherland I didn't have a chance to go to Antwerp.. I only bypass it while on my way from Airport to Amsterdam... I heard Antwerp is just amazing...

Faust.. as with NYC.. yeah.. seriously.. so *((*&( over-rated.. I found so much better places to hang out in Boston or Paris.... ugh... I am yet to find one good NYC club/place I like except the shopping.. but again.. yeah.. Dirk is hard to get in NYC.... except Century 21

I agree Poell makes beautiful clothes but he’s from Austria and not Antwerp, and I believe he graduated in Milan…

On another note I really want to go to Antwerp after reading all the recommendations here.
