The "Romance" Languages are French, Italian, Spanish, Portuguese, Catalan and Romanian... probably I should include Flemish as well. They are those most easily traced back to Latin. Wikipedia does a good job here:http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Romance_languages
Definitely not Flemish, which is almost identical to Dutch (from which Afrikaans developed), belonging to the same family as German, English, and the Scandinavian languages.
Yes there is a local Belgian dialect of French.
