This resource is engaging and useful. It is well-scaffolded, building on the learners knowledge and taking them through the different types of resumes in an understandable way. There are quizzes at the end of the resource which get progressively harder so learners can continue though their understanding of how to use resumes through the quizzes.

In short, I would strongly recommend this resource to introduce the different structures and uses of resumes. It could easily be used by high school, college, or intermediate and above level ESL students.

Technical Remarks:

It is very colorful (which I love!) and includes audio for those who love sounds. For example, there’s a bell that rings for right answers ☺ but no sound for wrong answers ☹. The only thing to be careful of is that the first button is a little hard to click, but after that, it’s very easy to use with simple “back” and “next” buttons. You even get a chance to review before the quizzes if, like me, you forget details easily. My only complaint is that I would have liked to see examples of the resumes or links to sample resumes. Otherwise, it’s great!
