Why aren't the sentences in standard arabic? When i lived in Egypt I was told I spoke like a book. At least I could start learning the egyptian dialect with a good grammar. The way the grammar is tought is like learning german by learning schwitzerdeutsch or bayerisch instead of learning hochdeutsch. for instance Baitak or baitik is not correct, it should be baituka/ki.
