The present study aimed to identify the effectiveness of e-learning environment in developing academic achievement and the attitude towards learning English among the 5th grade primary students. To achieve this purpose, an e-learning environment is designed and an achievement test and a scale for measuring attitude towards learning English are prepared. The quasi-experimental approach was applied to a sample of the 5th grade students, divided into a control group taught through the traditional method and an experimental group taught through an e-learning environment. The achievement test and English learning attitude scale were applied pre- and post- teaching. The study concluded that there were statistically significant differences in favor of the experimental group in both the post-achievement test and English learning attitude scale.
