Learn Arabic/The Alphabet (Absolute Beginners)

This book was designed to introduce Arabic Alphabet to learners of All ages. The book is in two parts: The Student’s Book and the Activity Book. The Student’s Book includes the basic lessons with reinforcing exercises and wordlists. The Activity Book includes the reading and writing activities which reinforce the material learnt in the first book. The objective of dividing this work into two books is to make it easier for learners, especially the young ones. To cover all alphabet items and provide sufficient and variant exercises is somehow unachievable within one book as it will become a bulky book; heavy to carry and handle. The work is divided in a way that it can be used easily and practically. The Student’s Book can be used to learn how to read and to learn new vocabulary items. The Activity Book is to learn writing and reinforce the vocabulary items through various quizzes and exercises. Every word in the book is illustrated with an image to link the visual memory of the meaning to the written form of the word. Each chapter is entailed with a word list. The list includes all the words in the chapter.
The words are presented in three aspects: Arabic, English, and Visual.
Although it is illustrated in a way that the book seems for children, the book can be practically used by adult learners to learn the alphabet, how to read and build up their vocabulary.
The book is originally aimed to introduce Arabic Alphabet to speakers of other languages. However, because it uses English as the main medium to introduce Arabic, the book can be used to increase the English vocabulary of Arab children who are using the book to learn Arabic. Therefore, the book can be used by primary schools in non-Arabic speaking countries or international schools in Arab countries to teach early years pupils. The Student’s Book includes 8 chapters. Each of these chapters includes the following sections:
1. Letters and Words
2. Reading exercises
3. Wordlist with images
The Activity Book includes relevant chapters to the lessons in the Student’s Book. Each chapter includes:
- Reading exercises
- Quizzes
- Colouring activities
- Writing activities
The parent or teacher can start with the Student’s Book and move to the Activity Book whenever they think that the learner is ready to explore and do more exercises. In the image gallery below you can see sample pages of the Student's Book

Learn Arabic/Animals in Arabic (5 Books)

Animals in Arabic  is a 5-book series of Lisan Arabi’s  to introduce Arabic names of animals to young learners of Arabic between 4 -12.
This series is very helpful for nursery and primary teachers as much as it is for parents who want their children to be familiar with Arabic words and Arabic script from an early age. All vocabulary items are introduced and illustrated with images.

Animals in Arabic   introduces animals in a proportioned pedagogical method within an entertaining framework to make learning enjoyable as well as effective.
Each animal/ word is introduced in three stages (pages):

    1.    presentation stage (seeing and recognising)
    2.    context stage (reading)
    3.    awareness stage ( deconstructing and constructing)

In the presentation stage, the child sees one image and one word. At this point, the child links the image to the word. English is not used with Arabic as it is less effective when mother language (ML) interference takes place. In other words, it is not recommended at this stage to use (ML). When (ML) interference is mimimum, language acquisition is likely to progress and the child learns faster. It is recommended that teachers or parents do not translate to the child even if the child can say the meaning in their (ML). It is acceptable to appreciate that the child knows the word in (ML) but parents at this stage should not respond by repeating the word in (ML). After repeating the word several times in Arabic, the child is ready to be guided to the next page.
In the context stage (I read), the child sees the same word but within context. The context is a very simple dialogue of a question and an answer:

A - What is this?   
B - It is a/an .......
The teacher/ parent should read the question and answer in Arabic to the child so he/she can hear the sound and understand the process. After that, the teacher/parent can point to the image above the dialogue and ask the question to the child. The child should be given the chance and time to think and figure out what to do or answer. The child can only say the name of the animal. However, it is much better if the child uses the demonstrative (this is) with the name of the animal.
As a rewarding and reinforcing entertainment in this stage, the child colour sin the dotted word using the same colours of the coloured word. This task (I colour) is very important as it will give the child a sense of reading and writing in Arabic while they are enjoying the colouring activity. This task (I colour) will also reinforce the word shape and meaning in memory and prepares the child to the third stage.
In the awareness stage ( I deconstruct and construct), the child does two tasks: the first one is to make a decision about the correct letter order where the name of the animal is given in a box. The child has to look at the shape of the word and try to choose the set with the correct letter order. In this task, the child practices to mentally deconstruct the word and compare it to the two options.  Thus, they become aware of the fact that   words are made of letters and that their order is essential to make the word hold particular meaning.

These phases are followed throughout the whole book. When the child has reached the end of the book they will have acquired and developed many mental skills such as: recognising the words, letters and letter orders in addition to using the language in the second stage (I read) and physical skills such as: using the hand to colour precisely, and using the eye to recognise the word and letter shapes.

The series is inteded to teach reading indirectly by making the learner explore the script of the language while learning about and enjoying the colours and shapes of the animals.

The Arabic Alphabet

Arabic for All   is intended and designed to help self-instructing students to learn Arabic in a different way. Arabic for All tries to provide the students with the basic knowledge of Arabic through reading. The students learn to read as a first step and immediately they start practice and explore the language while they are building up their vocabulary. This book starts from the first pages to furnish the pages as they fold with new words with their sounds and written form that they become familiar to the eye and ear when the students reach advanced levels.
The first of the series (The Arabic Alphabet) starts with introducing the Arabic alphabet as it has never been introduced before. The letters are introduced as sounds, shapes and minimal grammar units in the language. All in all, once the students have finished this level, they will become able to read and understand some of the word grammatical structures that make Arabic sound a difficult language to learn. Arabic for All tries ‘to help students catch fish and provide them with fish everyday’ It is about nurturing the knowledge rather than only providing it.
Arabic for All is designed to reinforce and improve reading and listening skills which can improve the rest of skills, writing and speaking. Reading enables the student to read simple signs, do simple quizzes, read books and newspapers, browse Arabic websites and read the Quran for those who study Arabic for religious purposes.


In this book, you will learn numbers in Modern Standard Arabic [MSA] and the grammar and vocabulary that are necessary to understand and learn how to communicate information about counting, arithmetic, time, pricing, and orders.
This book is carefully designed to help you master Arabic numerals in a contextual and interactive method. The book is divided into eight chapters:

Each chapter introduces a set of numbers and explains the grammar and the structure for each set. Videos and Audios are designed to make learning clearer and varied. In the end of each chapter, there are quizzes relevant to the content of the chapter for practice and self-assessment. Almost every word in this book is presented in a context both spoken (audio) and written ( for reading) and illustrated by an image (visual) to help the learners memorise the words. In other words, this book does not teach numbers in Arabic in an ordinary way. It does not focus on the numbers as single units to memorise but rather introduces numbers within a context of texts, sentences, images, math calculations, graphs and tables. The learner explores and practises the numbers and gains more knowledge of Arabic and grammar altogether. However, learners who want to study the numbers only, without going further into the grammar, can skim or skip the information they do not want to know. 
 The rich and varied content of the book covers the following points:
  • Learning the numbers Grammar of number usage
  • Gaining and mastering Arabic words
  • Practicing reading and listening

Finally, this book is designed in a way that learners of all ages can use to learn about numbers and relevant topics such as (talking about time and dates, reading an equation, understanding and using calculations.

It also includes passages with the relevant audio and translation which can be used for reading and listening lessons, especially it is designed to be read and shown on all iOS devices. Furthermore, the layout is user-friendly and works on all Mac platforms from iPhones, iPads, and Mac’s. However, the word search quizzes are better displayed on iPads due to some bugs the software provider is working on and it will be sorted out when the next version is released.
