Learn Egyptian Arabic from scratch !,
This review is from: Kullu Tamam!: An Introduction to Egyptian Colloquial Arabic (Paperback)
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.
The egyptian dialect is widely understood, though not as widely spoken, because Egypt produces loads of tv shows and films. And this book really helps.
I bought it after my graduation because I also wanted to speak Egyptian, and I would recomment it to anyone.
