How the test works

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

In France, we celebrate Easter. Easter Monday is a bank holiday [US: public holiday], so French people have a three-day weekend. Usually, families gather on Easter Sunday. In the morning, some families go to mass. Children look for chocolate eggs, then everyone shares a nice meal. Traditionally, we eat lamb for Easter. And who brings Easter eggs? In France, bells bring chocolate eggs into children's gardens. Happy Easter everyone!
