This paper focuses on the use of Moodle as a course management system in teaching General Academic Purposes English at an intermediate level of an intensive language program. After describing the Moodle course and providing examples of its content, advantages of integrating it in teaching English as a Foreign Language (EFL) will be pinpointed. Also, problems and concerns about its use will be presented. Finally, recommendations for future developments of Moodle as an e-learning component in the program and in similar EFL programs will be outlined, as informed by the described practice of designing and implementing a Moodle course.
