Training online can improve attainment and a deepening of knowledge of subject matters in all of the four skills (speaking, reading, writing, listening). Also, students are motivated to improving their knowledge. The format of the test and the possibility of a quick and precise evaluation is another advantage, making the online method attractive. The students of the Technical University Liberec can train another competence this way which is reading. In the Department of Foreign Languages at the Technical University of Liberec (TUL) was created for studying German an extensive online database of exercises was created for studying German. The origin of this database is the result of work carried out by teachers and students who contributed to the selection of tests and their implementation into a test module. It consists of online exercises focused on the practice of grammar, reading comprehension, listening comprehension and writing skills.
