Egyptian Arabic pronunciation

Graeme -TE1q

The pronunciation of "ahlan" is driving me crazy.  Every so often the software gives me a score of 100% but then it will drop back to 35% or something and I have no idea what I am doing to pronounce the word differently.  Can anyone suggest some tips for an English-speaker to correctly say "hello" in Egyptian Arabic.  Incidentally, why do a number of other online programmes suggest the word "maahaban" (or something similiar) for saying "hello"?
