motaz101010: i really want to go to study in india but the major problem for me is the indian accent it's very hard to understand
Michel Marié: +motaz101010\n I absolutely believe you, as far as I know you are right, cause India is India with all its advantages and disadvantages, however, the matter was about Indian accent, especially about the accent of the speaking lady. I just compare her accent and accent of some Indian guys who were studying medicine when I was a student (in Siberia, in Krasnoyarsk-city), those days I could not understand their Indian accent, but may be I did not understamd them well because I did not speak English fluently at that time :)
