In this paper, a speech enhancement method using 2D Gabor filter is proposed. The proposed filter is used to enhance Arabic phoneme speech signals that have been recorded under control environment namely indoor room recording. All the phoneme signals are spoken by Malay speakers and considered as non-native Arabic speakers. Firstly, corrupted speech signals by noise must be enhanced before further processing. The effectiveness of the suggested approach is evaluated in compare with Wiener
