Abstract

Foreign languages learning is becoming more and more popular. A lot of people decides to start learning but in many cases some barriers exist. In small towns or villages there are no qualified teachers. This problem can be solved by remote teaching. Last time it is a popular method to make language lessons via voice communicators. Such a method should be supported by another tool to send tasks to do to students or to examine them. A portal to support learning foreign languages and to ensure communication between teacher and students was created by authors. The goal of the paper is to present its capabilities and to verify its usefulness.
