Abstract: Even though moving the teaching-learning process to the online environment during the COVID-19 pandemic has triggered the long-awaited educational revolution, it certainly has both benefits and drawbacks. The present study aims to shed light on tourism undergraduates' views on the advantages and disadvantages of different e-learning systems used at Constantine the Philosopher University in Nitra, Slovakia, during two semesters in the academic year 2021/22, in terms of their English language skill development. The data were collected through online questionnaires and analysed using the method of thematic analysis, while the research sample involved 101 tourism undergraduates majoring in the Regional Tourism BA study programme. The findings revealed that students were more satisfied with the intensity of skill development in the summer semester using MS Teams, concerning all the investigated skills, but mainly in the case of speaking and listening skills.
