How the test works

Here's a preview of the text for the writing challenge, when you're ready click the start button above:

- Nicolas, I'm going to do a food shop [US: I'm going grocery shopping]. Do you need anything? - Yes, I have a list for you. I want to make my Bolognese sauce, so I would like two white onions, five big tomatoes and some basil. - There's also a bottle of wine on that list. - Yes, of course! We can't eat Bolognese spaghetti without a nice bottle of red wine! - I agree! I'm hungry now, see you in a bit!
