Speak Kuwaiti

I just saw an ad for a book on how to speak Kuwaiti Arabic. Each Arab country has it's own dialect but I think Kuwait is different than most. There are different Kuwaiti dialects within Kuwait, the hather and bedoo dialects. I can understand hather dialect easier than bedoo. I think I will pick up this book as I have an older Gulf dialect book I got ages ago.

Examples of bedoo and hather:

The work Failaka as in the island is pronounced as it is in bedoo dialect but in hather they turn the 'k' into 'ch' so it's pronounced Failacha.
