Abstract :

E-learning is important for languages learning. Arabic differs from other languages in some features such as right-to-left scripting direction, unfamiliar looking letters, changing letter forms depending on the position in a word, and attaching a diacritical mark to a letter to show how to pronounce it. This paper introduces new multimedia for developing a new Arabic e-Learning system (ETaJWa) to support non-Arabic speakers in reading and pronouncing Arabic sounds correctly, using new and complete Roman phonetic codes and signs in the mirrored form “Through the Looking-Glass” to match Arabic direction and to help the very beginners to start reading and pronouncing from right to left without instructions. It is shown by a statistical analysis that the mirrored one is significant compared to the two alternative in non-mirrored form..

Keywords :

: e-learning, Developing, Mirrored form, Arabic sounds, Roman Phonetics.
