"Kunt u" or "u kunt" is the polite form - I think it can be used in both 
plural and singular, my Flemish is a bit rusty to be honest.
Certain englishmen would ofcourse read "u kunt" in a completely 
different way but that's another topic alltogether :)

With me it's just the other way around, all Germans call me Joerg no 
matter how loud i say jOOOOOrg :)
