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, I had an appointment at 4pm but I'm a bit late, sorry. - No problem, Sonia is going to take care of you. - I haven't come for three weeks so my nails need your help! - Let's start with a relaxing soak. Then, I can use an exfoliating cream to remove dead skin. - What a good idea! - And of course, I must file your nails. What varnish [US: nail polish] colour would you like? - I would like dark red varnish [US: polish], please.

Clever stuff happening!
