How the test works

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

- Now that the concert venues are reopening, I can't wait to go to a concert! - Me too! I've discovered so many new bands during lockdown, and I would love to see them on stage. I would give anything to see Thérapie TAXI for example. - Yes! Their album "Cadavre Exquis", that I bought in 2019, is so good. I've been listening to it on loop for months. I would queue [US: stand in line] with you to get tickets. - Cool, I'll check the dates online! - And what about La Femme? Have you heard their latest single? They sing in English with a ridiculous French accent, which I found hilarious. We should try and see them too!

I'll be right with you...
