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 love living in the city centre [US: downtown] because I can go to the supermarket on foot and I don't need a car. Plus, in my neighbourhood, there are a lot of shops. When I feel like meat, I go to the butcher shop. On Wednesdays and (on) Saturdays, I can go to the market! And in the morning, I go to the bakery to buy a warm baguette!
