How the test works

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

- Hello, can I take your order? - Hello, yes thank you very much. As a starter [US: an appetizer], I would like a tomato salad, and I'll have the duck breast as a main, please. - Would you like rice or potatoes with your duck breast? - I prefer rice, thank you. - Very good. And for dessert? - I don't want dessert for now. - And with this, what would you like to drink? - Do you have sparkling water? - Yes of course! I'll bring it to you right away.
