I Want to Learn Arabic in the UAE..or Will I????

I am so desperate to learn Arabic and it would be such a waste to be living here and know nothing about this language.  But just imagine if you had the purest of intention to learn it, upon entering your favorite grocery shop, you are greeted with this:

Grocer: Assalamualaikum..mau beli apa?  Apa khabar?

Whatlaaaa....?????? So, tell me please..HOW THE HECK AM I SUPPOSED TO LEARN ARABIC?????

Sue...ko jangan terkejut..bukan MAlay tau but India mali..pening ko dia cakap Melayu but then of course with the Indonesian accent. So, I guess I will get an Indonesian accent as compared to learning Arabic ler kot...
