Does anyone know of some good books and/or trustworthy websites about modern Egypt? I need information about the education system in Egypt, families, children, hobbies...just normal everyday life.

I think the best way is by talking to the Egyptians themselves. I'm sure there are some sites where you can get someone from Egypt as an online pen pal. I've spoken to Egyptians online and I've learnt a lot about their culture.

However you choose to get your information, good luck!

You might do a search for a language board. Generally they are used for people of different languages to improve their second language. It would be a good way to learn more about Egyptian culture, and help someone learn your language as well as improving your Arabic.

guess the best is to be friends with Egyptian on Facebook and ask Egyptian themselves.
