    I know there are so many different dialects but which is the main one? The one that all of the Arabic speakers can understand even just a little bit. I've always wanted to learn it

    i speak arabic, its hard to narrow down the common dialect. im iraqi so thats what im familiar with but if you go egypt for example it would be a completely different dialect.

    do you have any background with arabic?
