This paper describes a software tool that allows us to teach students the principles and concepts of Fuzzy Information Retrieval Systems based on weighted queries. This tool is used in the course Information Retrieval Systems Based on Artificial Intelligence at the Faculty of Library and Information Science at the University of Granada. With this teaching tool students learn the management of the fuzzy weighted query languages which could be used in any conventional Web search engine to improve the representation of user information needs.
