Hello all, I just recently began studying Arabic. Before starting i was aware there were variations of Arabic, but i did not realize how many. So i am a little overwhelmed. I decided to start with Egyptian Colloqial Arabic because I've read this version is widely understandable in most Arabic countries. My question is, how different are the other dialects? Will speakers of the other dialects be able to understand me and I them? Did I make a good choice in starting with Egyptian Arabic?
