Solutions
1b: It was Jan Vande Velde. Family names in Flanders often have these kind of family names, starting with van. Sometimes there's spaces, sometimes there are no spaces.
2a
3a: a/e/o/u plus one consonant plus -en means a, e, o or u are pronounced long.
4d: Uw and u are inverted, address is written adres, and mevrauw is mevrouw (it sounds the same though)
5c: If it's a combination of words, n and g are pronounced separately. The ending ng is not a combination. It was a difficult question.
6c: It's different from English. If someone asks you 'where are you from?', in English you can say 'Belgium.' But in Dutch it is not possible, you can choose from uit and van België.
7c: Fabriek. That's a place of employment, and not a job.
8a: It has nothing to do with freedom, which is vrijheid.
9c: It's the same as 'nog een prettige avond' but with afternoon in the end.
