Asked in Arabic Language and Culture

Whether you should learn standard Arabic or a dialect depends entirely on why you are learning the language in the first place. Generally, if you want to talk to people in informal settings, a dialect is better to learn. If you want to read, write, and conduct official business, learning MSA (also called Fus-ha) is better.
