New language learner looking for basic tips

Peace and greetings all,

I am an American living on the West Coast. It is my dream to one day travel to the Middle East. I have no such plans at this point in my life, but I am interested in preparing for that dream by learning how to speak many different dialects of Arabic. I will likely start with Egyptian, as this site seems to have the greatest number of resources available for that particular dialect.

Does anyone have any advice for learning multiple dialects? How about general tips on practicing? I am new to even learning a second language, so any advice would be appreciated. Thank you.
