Hi, my name is Zaynab Hamdi and I am the founder of ILM Projects and the creator of Letter Connector.


When I was young, I learnt Arabic as a second language. I quickly grew frustrated as I found it to be difficult and not enjoyable to learn.Years later I started teaching Arabic, and my students were just as frustrated as I was at their age. I had to break the cycle! During my search for compelling learning tools, I found little more than traditional tracing sheets and workbooks. There was no platform for meaningful, interactive learning. I had to innovate for the sake of my students.

That's how Letter Connector was born.



My search for Arabic tools

For those who don't know, Arabic is one of the more difficult languages to learn, but the challenge also makes it one of the most rewarding.For many of us, its script and syntax don't resemble our own, making it much harder to learn as a second language. Nobody had developed a tool that effectively covered all the different letter forms, making it even harder for my students to pick up on the intricacies of the language. With Letter Connector my students now enjoy the hands-on approach to learning, and the colour-coded pieces introduce new forms of educational gameplay.



Not only is Letter Connector the only Arabic learning tool that truly teaches the entire lexicon, but it's built for all ages and is greener than its traditional alternatives. Almost immediately, my students were excited to come to Arabic School and were motivated to learn. Suddenly, Arabic was fun



With over 100 pieces, Letter Connector is a comprehensive learning tool containing all of the Arabic letters in all of their forms and the harakat. It comes with a magnetic whiteboard, a dry wipe pen, and an instruction sheet.



The letters aren't just colour-coded to make organisation and clean-up easier, they're also a big help for visual learners!


It can be used by both children and adults making it a useful tool for parents and teachers.

Letter connector is great for:

  • Recognising letters easily in their different forms
  • Stimulating the brain
  • Building confidence
  • Creating bonding time between parents and children

How do we help parents learn along with their children?

When I started teaching, I had a lot of parents approach me asking for advice on how to help their children learn Arabic. Since they could not speak Arabic they wanted some way to be able to work with their child. I knew I needed to find some way to remedy this issue.

ILM Projects is developing supplementary resources that parents can use to work with their children. On our website you will find free supplementary resources including worksheetscolouring sheets, and a new word search generator for free unlimited use. The word search generator allows for custom word searches to created, downloaded, and printed in minutes.

Parents can use these resources to build up their child’s vocabulary (and their own!) and have fun at the same time.



By supporting Letter Connector you will be helping a great effort to bring the next generation of Arabic learning to the world.
