A Dictionary of Egyptian Arabic Arabic – English Author: M.Hinds, E.Badawi
I have just moved to Egypt and am trying to learn Arabic. All the previous dictionaries I have seen have been for standard Arabic which is no use for learning to speak in Egypt. This is a fantastic book, that is clearly and concisely set out and I am finding it an invaluable source of information. Slightly expenisve but well-worth the money for anyone who wants to learn the colloquial language of Egypt.
