How the test works

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

This week, I discovered some interesting facts about Belgium that I felt like sharing with you! Everyone likes a nice Belgian beer, but did you know that Belgians brew close to 800 types of beer? They also drink a lot of it, about 100 litres per person per year! And contrary to what people might think, fries come from Belgium, which is also the country of chocolate (along with Switzerland, of course!). Brussels's airport is in fact the biggest chocolate sales outlet in the world. And one last fact for the road: out of all the developed countries, Belgium has the lowest proportion of McDonald's per inhabitant.

Clever stuff happening!
