I came from Croatia to Belgium in 2018. The very next Day i started to work with My uncle in this company in Herstal, I worked there for almost two years I even got a full time contract from the company. But when the new manager came he treated me very poorly and made me quit My job and i did quit My job and now i have a problem because i only speak english and nobody else doesnt want to hire me because of that. I even went to capac and i got the c4 papper and i was told that i would go on a meeting with some People from LFA but when i came there the language was again the problem and They told me i have to wait for a month for their respond and then i would have to send them an email on english to tell them why i left my job and then They would translate it and i would have to wait more and im not even sure if They would help me The problem is i dont have enough money for rent and food for that much time to wait and i dont want to lose everything i worked hard for that much time, i have a belgian ID i have a car i pay tax and I dont know who i can ask for help anymore. I saw this forum and i hope somebody can give me some advice or help, anything would be helpfull, thank you for your time for reading this.


Hi Dariori94,

Welcome to Expat.com!

Just to inform you that i changed the title of your thread. I hope other member can advise you soon.

You can also create your CV in the jobs in Belgium section.

I wish you good luck,


I will give you some leads.

But for me, you are entirely responsible for your situation. Because when you settle in a foreign country, you learn the local language to be able to manage in case of problems.

- First, go and register in the CPAS of your municipality. They will help you with food and accommodation.
- Secondly, go and register with the unemployment services.

- Third, register for French lessons for foreigners. You just need to contact the administrative services of the Belgian city where you live.
- Fourth, request registration for the integration course.

As a reminder, Belgium has three national languages (French, Dutch, German). English has never been and never will be.
