You can get around with ease by keeping a Lonely Planet phrase book in your pocket. Just memorize a phrase (they're spelled phonetically) for whatever situation you're in, practice a couple of times, then start chatting. Even if you mispronounce something, people appreciate your taking the time to try learning the language, and can probably work with you to communicate through any situation. Especially in Cairo, it's a great way to bond with friendly people. report a problem
