Are there many differences between the Arabic spoken in Egypt and that spoken in North Africa, specifically Tunisia?

You were right brother. Even in Malaysia we have different dialects. So the same thing in Arabic countries. For example; many words to say hello such as hala, labas, gawwa, halau, ahlan or marhaban in Modern Standard Arabic.

Yes, there are differences amongst every dialect, some being more similar to the Egyptian dialect than others. I have a Moroccan friend and the Moroccan dialect is very different than that of the Egyptians. They also speak a lot of French, so I doubt I would be able to understand them very well.

I've been to Egypt and Morocco and they had no problem understanding my Egyptian dialect.

There is a great difference between dialects and words in
arabics.As you know people talk in a different way and write the
language in a formal way.MSA is formal type of language and can not
teach you the dialects of the language.There is difference between
Egyptian and Moroccan dialects and both have a different use of
language.People who learn only MSA can only speak the formal
language and can feel a bit odd.A dialect is necessary to learn if
you want to know [url="http://www.melspublications.com/"]how to
speak arabics[/url].
