How the test works

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

I've spent many holidays abroad which have all proven to be unforgettable experiences. As a linguist, I particularly love visiting countries whose language isn't English. The more their language differs from mine, the more stimulating I find the holiday. However, whether you're travelling by train or by plane, foreign holidays can quickly become tiring and stressful. I would love for people to be able to teleport, which would reduce pollution at the same time. It would be a win-win solution! Of course, I've also explored my own country, which I enjoy at least as much as my foreign adventures.

I'll be right with you...
