How do I reset the input language to English when I can't read the current language?

I have a Nexus 4 with the latest OS.

I accidentally set the input to Arabic.

Now I don't know how to reset to English.

I tried re-booting but it did not revert to English.

I would like to avoid a factory reset, if possible.

I discovered how to do this.

The icons for the various functions remain the same.

I went into

  1. Settings (cogwheel icon) then
  2. Language & input (white square with black A)
  3. Top item in this menu is Language

I tapped this item and was presented with the normal list of languages, each in its own font.
