MSA & Darija
Darija (colloquial/everday language) of Arab states differs by a lot, I'm told. I am guessing that in saharan Africa they borrow heavily from Amazigh (aka Bedouin - but they don't like this term) but what would the rest of the Darijas borrow from?
I am probably going to learn Levantine Arabic but how different is it from others? Arab speakers - what can you and can't you understand?
