There are something which you already know but still they make you feel happy when you encounter them. Felt same when we landed in Edinburgh. (Yes, I am talking about our last week vacation at Scotland)
Fact that we could actually understand all the announcements, notices, displays, adds...hahaha
We were so happy that wow, here we don't have to wonder what does that announcement or notice means or how to explain something to someone, here language is English !
We came out of Airport, it was easy to follow the instruction, kept walking towards car rental, picked up the car.
Talked with my sister (who is doing her master studies at Glasgow school of arts) in response to her inquiry if we were already there, safely.
I chattered happily ...
Hey wow you know what we love this place, it's so easy to communicate !
Everything in English feels so relaxing now !
Ohh ya, that way !
It's nice being able to understand everything.
Ohh wait until you have to communicate more with them.
What do they mean, Official language in Scotland is English, isn't it?
It's Scottish English, and wait till you are in Glasgow and you 'll know what i mean !
And we knew what she meant as soon as we entered Glasgow and all our first response ended up being same as - huh? sorry?
But afterall it's English, ears gets acquainted with it after some time. And good thing, not everyone in Scotland speak that thick accented fast-paced Glaswegian English !
Yes in Glasgow they speak Glaswegian , not exactly English. ;o)
On the side note, While googling i came across so many website, offering help with Glasgow accent ! Amazing !
