Train travel from Bruges to Ghent then Brussels need help

We need to travel from Bruges to Ghent on June 5, which train station and do we need to buy tickets now or can be bought the same day?

Then on June 6 we need to travel from Ghent to Brussels where we will be staying at BW Premier Carredour De L'Europe HOtel. Could someone tell me how we should do this? Which train station? where can we see the timetables of the trains. Do we need to buy tickets now or until we get there. All your help will be appreciated first time travelers and do not speak the language. Thank you in advance.

< We need to travel from Bruges to Ghent on June 5, which train station ? >

Bruges main station, simply called "Brugge" - the town's name in its native (Dutch) language.

From: Brugge [NMBS/SNCB]

To: Gent-Sint-Pieters [NMBS/SNCB]

< do we need to buy tickets now or can be bought the same day? >

You can buy them the same day.

To: Brussel-Centraal

< Do we need to buy tickets now or until we get there ? >

You can buy them when you get there.

< first time travelers and do not speak the language. >

I don't think you will have problems making yourself understood in any of these places. All are used to English-speaking visitors.

Hotel is 5 minutes' walk downhill from Brussels Central station (Brussel-Centraal: bottom right-hand corner of the map).

Very easily done, buy your tickets from a machine or from one of the wickets, look at the boards for up your train and track info. Language wont be a problem. I found bahn.com useful just for planning, don't purchase tickets from them, because it also clearly displayed train info and track info.
