The Frozen article was very interesting. I still can't walk into a convenience store here without hearing either the English or Japanese version of "Let It Go" being played on the radio.
My wife teaches Japanese to a displaced Syrian family here in Japan, and this dialect thing really is a problem, apparently. Much of the vocabulary is totally different between dialects, and people tend to forget Modern Standard Arabic if they aren't exposed to it (well, this is true of any language I guess). Like that article says, most people are watching soap operas in Syrian dialect or movies in Egyptian dialect, so it's not so easy to get exposure to MSA if you aren't living in a predominantly Arabic country.
