The integration of adequate information and communication technologies (ICT) in the right place and at the right time plays a determining role regarding language learning efficiency. The development of language competencies and the training and teaching of English for military purposes to officers, public officials and civil servants can be efficiently realized in organized forms partly by networking the already existing multimedia learning material for military English and by dynamic database extension. In the second semester of the academic year 2007/2008 an e-learning military English language teaching package was developed in the Moodle open source learning management system, implemented and used within the framework of a pilot project. This paper presents the concept of the MILES -military English learning system -, deals with the software components used for the implementation. Furthermore, this paper gives details of the course developments, the evaluation opportunities, it summarizes some experience of the project, analyzes the usability of the material as well as the learning habits of the end users.
