In this paper we present an innovative e-learning platform that was specifically designed to support the teaching of reading comprehension skills. First, we describe the principal difficulties of reading in a foreign language and then detail how the multitude of exercise types the presented system has at its disposal, gives support in acquiring reading comprehension skills. We show a few more supportive features of our platform and furthermore present the intuitive WYSIWYG style authoring tool which constitutes a major benefit for language tutors in creating and modifying the contents of the platform. Finally, some technical details are sketched and future developments of the platform are discussed that may also be of particular interest for the maintainers of other, similar e-learning systems.
