Using and iPad or iPhone to learn or practice a new language is now fairly common.

If you are serious about learning a foreign language (especially with a Non-Latin alphabet such as Arabic) then it’s a good idea to install the keyboard onto your device, since typing is a good way to actively use your language skills.

One advantage of a touchscreen device is, of course, the freedom to change the keyboard layout without additional hardware. For any serious Arabic language learner, an Arabic keyboard is a necessary for looking up Arabic words in a dictionary or searching for verb conjugations.
