How the test works

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

When I was a teenager, my father and I used to go away for the weekend together. In the morning, we used to go fishing and we would wait by the water for hours, without a word, calm and happy. Then, around noon, we would go back to the hotel to make ourselves delicious sandwiches! In the afternoon, we would watch a football or rugby game, and Dad would share his beer with me: it was our little secret! Now that I'm a bit older, I continue that tradition with my own son.

Getting that for you now...
