  1. Arabic beginner question

    So I'm a long time linguaholic who has studied several languages but now I'm in a situation where it might be in my best interest to learn how to speak Arabic. I'm living in an area now with a considerable Arabic speaking population and Muslim culture here, and now whenever I'm out in the neighborhood I see and hear people speaking Arabic all the time so I think given my new neighborhood, it would be a good idea to learn some conversational Arabic. My goal is to be able to speak it and understand it when others speak it, but not necessarily to read or write it. Which dialect should I select as my new target language? Something specific or just standard Arabic? I believe my best bet would be to go for Darija (Moroccan Arabic) because I've identified some very strong Moroccan cultural influence in my new town. I don't know for sure what form of the language I keep hearing when I'm out though, so I'm unsure how to go about starting this new language project of mine. Again, my goal is to verbally communicate with the Arabic speaking population where I'm now living. Any advice from others studying Arabic would be welcome as I'm a beginner with no background in the language and I'm unsure how to begin.
