Language And Communication

Almost all Egyptians, especially those working in tourism, know some English. If they don’t, they will guide the tourists to some other people who know English. People in Egypt are usually very friendly and helpful

Communicating with Egyptians is never a problem as they know many ways of communication and various skills

Egyptians love it when tourists know some Arabic words like “Shokran: Thanks” “Salam Alaikum : Hello” “Bekam: for how much”. This would create a nice sense between the locals and the foreigners

If travelers are planning to travel away from the common Egyptian touristic route; to cities or neighbourhoods that are not usually explored by travelers, it is recommended to know some Arabic and it is actually better to be accompanied by an Egyptian guide or escort.

However, here are some of the most commonly used practical words you might be in need to while you are exploring amazing Egypt.
