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