Contrarily to what the other review says, you definitely need arabic dialects to communicate. I graduated in Arabic and spent 2 months in Yemen to practice it, and believe me, outside the arabian peninsula very few people speak standard arabic.

I bought it after my graduation because I also wanted to speak Egyptian, and I would recomment it to anyone.
