I have heard 2nd secondary like KP, but that was a while ago and could even be different from school to school. There might be some that start in primary school.

Flemish isn't a dialect, it is an accumulation of vernaculars. It isn't a composed dialect either. An Antwerpenaar will experience difficulty understanding a genuine Bruggeling. assignment service. The distinction is in the pretentiousness. As somebody on here once said 'it isn't the done thing to talk tongue when managing general society'.
