The Nun and the Pen language series introduces the Arabic language to non-native speakers at various levels. The series contains four books (the Beginner Level is divided into two parts), and through a systematic approach, it develops language skills and offers progress tools to aid self-learning students. Beginning with a simple glossary of written and pictorial word representations, the books progress to develop listening and conversational skills in students. The Intermediate Level takes a unique approach to teaching language through stories, poems and cultural references, optimizing learning and making the experience a natural and enjoyable one. Once students become more comfortable with the language, the final book then delves into grammar and syntax rule and their application in Arabic.
