In Gurmukhi Workbooks 1 and 2, for each of the forty Gurmukhi letters, the student is introduced to two new Panjabi words. To help build the student’s Panjabi word bank, over one hundred Panjabi words are included in the two workbooks.

The two workbooks can be used as Panjabi vocabulary colouring books, for the young student. To help make learning meaningful and engaging for the student, each of the forty Gurmukhi letters are accompanied by beautiful black and white illustrations.
