Abstract

This paper reports how a new e-learning system for Arabic language supports the beginners of non-Arabic speakers in identifying each Arabic letter in a word and reading/pronouncing Arabic script. In Arabic, letters forming a word are connected to each other. Each Arabic letter has three different figures according to its position in a word (beginning, middle or end). Users’ studies were conducted with 77 examinees in Japan to find which one is preferable for identifying letters of two alternatives: coloring letters or separating letters with spaces. Results showed that colored alternative is preferable. We are developing an e-learning system that incorporates the coloring way and our right-to-left phonetic to support learners in identifying and reading/pronouncing Arabic script by themselves.
