I’m learning Egyptian dialect since September. I understand it better now, but I’m still speaking a mix between Fussha and Egyptian. I have to get used to speaking Egyptian.

After all this time, it’s still hard for me to understand the Egyptian dialect. It’s a bit frustrating, to say something. In fact, I think that I understand better any other dialect that the one I am supposed to be studying :roll: .

How are you doing with the dialects you’re learning. Is it going better?

Nah, my Levantine sucks. I can have conversations but I don't understand anything on TV. I'm seriously thinking about moving to Lebanon to improve it.

This is a video in what, I think, it’s Omani dialect.

Lebanese was the first I learned, but I also gained some familiarity with Egyptian from music. I then grew to really like Khaleeji, so I learned a bit of Emirati and Kuwaiti. I then got really into Iraqi, so I know some of that too.

I still prefer to "speak" Lebanese and I also understand it the best.
