Talk Like an Egyptian

Phonetic rules are powerful tools for speaking dialects and learning multiple dialects. A lot of words are shared across dialects, meaning pronunciation is at times the only thing baring the student of Arabic from expanding from one dialect to the next.


Taxi (Audio Book)

This post is courtesy of the awesome and wonderful professor Heba Salem, who generously shared her recording of the book Taxi (تاكسي). The book is a well-known piece of modern literature written by Khaled Al Khamissi in a combination of al-Fusha and dialect. To help those who are coming to this with an eye for learning, there are also vocabulary lists included.
