How the test works

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

- Like a lot of young people my age, I mostly read the news online, on social media, where I follow several newspapers' accounts, which enables me to have instant access to the headlines. I can then decide to read more in-depth articles and I also watch live news feeds on my laptop. - I also go and check the news online, but in the morning, I often buy the newspaper which I then read on the subway or the bus. If I'm feeling lazy, I just turn on the radio on my phone and I listen to the news with my headphones. And of course, I can always count on my colleagues to hear the latest news at the coffee machine!

Clever stuff happening!
