Lebanese Arabic speakers?

I'm Lebanese I don't even understand the Egyption accent well:S
I think you should just stick with Lebanese accent, it sounds much more sxcier than the rest of the Arabic accents. The gulf Arabic sounds too aggressive and manly, the north African sounds like they're talking jibberish and I hate the way they pronounce the words..Lebanese sounds softer than the Syrian/Jordanian so go for the Lebanese accent, it's more feminine.

It also doesn't sound bad at all with English accents, I have a British accent so when I talk Lebanese ppl can tell I come from abroad and they find my accent attractive, trust me I've seen all those girls try and put on an American accent and it doesn't sound good coz they try soo hard. You naturally have it and ppl will envy you !

Lebanese Arabic speakers?

Assuming you're all Lebanese Arabic speaking people .. I need help! Is learning Lebanese Arabic hard for an English speaker? American English is my Native tongue. I know some standard Arabic but I want Lebanese dialect. I already speak fluent French by the way (years abroad) .. will that help? I heard Lebanese Arabic has a French influence. I have been told that Egyptian Arabic is the way to go, only because it's understood in most Middle Eastern countries. Is that true? What about Lebanese?

Lastly , I'm just curious. When someone speaks understandable Arabic (specifically Lebanese dialect) with an American accent does it sound ugly? harsh? attractive? stupid? what do you think? I don't mean a horrible accent where you can't make any of the sounds but a significant one that's easy to comprehend.

okay .. that's it. Thanks in advance. :D
