I went to the library to pick up a language tape to figure out how to pronounce a few Arabic phrases. They had several tapes for Gulf Arabic, but I didn't know what to pick for Egyptian Arabic. There are so many Arabic-speaking countries, and I know there are many variations. What form should I be looking for for the dialect spoken in Egypt? Or will it not matter for just the few basic phrases?
There are phrases in the back of my guidebooks, but I need to hear it spoken repeatedly to get a handle on how to pronounce the words. Playing the tape over and over and memorizing it has worked well for me in the past.
