Asallam alaykum. I'm about learning modern standard arabic. Now i also want to look a little deeper into a specific dialect. Tunisian or egyptian. But i have no idea which one to choose.

My overall purpose for learning arabic is the spoken. That i want to be able to communicate with people, understand music and television and because i love the language and the culture. Then some plus sites is that i also want to be able to read and understand the qu'ran.

My reasons for considering these dialects specific are that my lovely man is tunisian, and when i'm with him i would love to be able to keep up when arabic with the local dialect is spoken and communicate in the language good.

About the egyptian dialect, i think about this because it's so big. Many speaks it, many movies and much television is in this and also lots of music.

There is just so much more material on learning the egyptian dialect online, than there's on the tunisian. So what do you think i should start learning along msa online now, egyptian or tunisian?

I just think also if i learned the egyptian, because i think it would be easier for me online(i dont know?), but i then think that it would be good because i understand more also in the media, and i could still comunicate with the tunisian locals in this or what? And when i am in Tunisia it would then become easier to communicate in the arabic i know, msa and egyptian if i started with this dialect, and understand eachother and then be able to pick the tunisian language easy up by just simple beeing there and listeting to it.

I'm very confused about where to start, as you can hear, so please help me out. :)
