How the test works

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

That morning, I'll get up before everybody else and I'll go and buy croissants around the corner. Bruno will have made coffee for the both of us before I come back from the bakery We'll drink it without rushing while pressing the oranges that we'll have bought the day before so that Julie and Tom can have fresh orange juice! Once all that is ready, all we'll have left to do is wake the children up. While they get ready, I'll take this opportunity to check that they haven't forgotten anything in their school bags. After enjoying their special breakfast, they'll run to meet their friends who will be waiting for them on the street with their parents.

I'll be right with you...
