-un ending pronunciation in Duolingo Arabic

Hi! Really happy with the Arabic course so far. I came across this word in one of the lessons

ملكة فرنسية

Which means "a French queen". Duo pronounces it as: malikat-un faransiiya. Why is the -un not added to faransiiya, i.e., why is it not "malikat-un faransiiya-tun"?
