How the test works

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

Next week, for the first time in three months, I'll see my best friend Quentin who now lives abroad. As always at this time of year, I'll take my favourite umbrella, the one with the little red hedgehogs on a green background. We'll go to the shopping centre [US: mall], because he told me that he needs a new raincoat, so I'll buy him one for his birthday. Then, we'll have a nice hot latte at our favourite coffee shop where we'll be able to chat at length. And when night starts to fall, I'll walk him back to his hotel.

I'll be right with you...
