Any Ideas for Learning to Type on Arabic Keyboard?
I have a phone that allows me to pick the language that I can type in. Arabic has so many letters and I have trouble remembering where they fit in a word and how to add the little symbols on top of the letters. I know how to read some Arabic, but since the letters can change form, it is difficult to type them. Any suggestions for learning how to type words? Anyone else having the same issues?
what you have to write are consonants and long vowels - don't bother with diacritics - arabs don't write them - to learn where every consonant or long vowel is - write them on a sheet of paper with the keyboard classification :
ج ح خ ه ع غ ف ق ث ص ض ط ك م ن ت ا ل ب ي س ش د ظ ز و ة ى ر ؤ ء ذ
memorize them as they were words like this
جَحَخَ هَعَغَ فَقَثَ صَضَ طَكَمَ نَتَا لَبَيَ سَشَ دَ ظَ زَ وَ ةَ ى رَ ؤُ ءَ ذَ
after that begin to practice - write anything - no matter if it has a meaning or not - try for example to write geographical names
