    Neither of them!!!
    The Standared Arabic is the best for the learners....

    lebanese of course

    Well , after learning fosha - you can learn Egyptian is really cool and kinda easy ..

    Egyptian is easier

    lebanese is the best but i recommend standard arabic.

    standar arabic is the best as Ali said anyway both lebanese and egyption are nice but i find egyption easier but lebanese is nicer and more beautiful

    Egyptian only :)

    yea,i'm with what nora22 said... egyptian is easer & lebanese is nicer & if u want to sing standar as a beginner learner is better...
    No dont learn the arabic language depends on the accent,Learn it as classical arabic ( fusha ) this's the most way to learn arabic,by the way,lebanos way is easier than the egyption.

    I tell you some suggestion
    You can learn a dialect while learning standard Arabic, because standard Arabic is really important when reading news and books, and when communicating with people who doesn't understand your Arabic dialect. So when you learn something new in standard Arabic just find it's equivalent in the dialect you want to learn, it will be easy as they are quiet similar
    About choosing the dialect, Egyptian is widely understood among the Arab world, Lebanese we Egyptian can understand it but don't know if all the other countries understand it well, so you can choose what sounds nice to your ears when you hear it.


    There's no "language" called lebanese, Algerian, Egyptian...Arabic, since a language depends on Grammar, writing ...
    Also, it depens on what u wan to do, u'll never be able to read a book if u only master dialects.

    The best, I can advise you, smarter way to study-is right classical Arabic that the most important and fundamental, and a little-Lebanese dialect.But if you want to go to Egypt, then it will be wise to learn a little the Egyptian dialect too (apart from the classical Arabic), then you will understand better the Egyptians . But the literary Arabic language is the main in any case.So the best- classical Arabic+ a little the dialect of the country,which you want to go.But I will say,that in any case, if you speak correctly only in literary(classical) Arabic, in any Arab country will not be problems!

    i think Egyptian Arabic is more tradition and more easier.
