    Haha it's not expensive, it costs only 0.5 cents a minute . But I've difficulties to understand the Scottish Accent .

    Thank you!
    Don't worry about asking the person on the phone to repeat themselves or speak more slowly. It might be a good idea to explain English isn't your first language at the start of the conversation. Hopefully you'll get a reply by email soon anyway, but if you have to decide by Thursday, then it would be good to try and get an answer before then.

    Yes, I'll wait until tomorrow and if they don't reply, I'll call them.
    Haha, I never had problems understanding any English Accent - but the Scottish one is really hard to understand.
    Thank you for your help!

    A lot of English people struggle with a Glaswegian accent, so don't feel too bad about that I've even seen it subtitled on TV.

    However, most students and staff at the uni won't have a Glaswegian accent, so it won't be quite as bad as you might imagine

    Thanks . If they don't answer today, I'm gonna call them tomorrow.
    I think I'd get used to it, if I live there and has to deal with it every day. Well, it's nearly the same with the German dialects, I don't really understand what these people say .
