How the test works

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

If, like me, you are sensitive to cold, you're going to love my tips to fight the cold. First, my heating turns on while I'm still in bed. That way, it's warm when I get up. I always wear two pairs of socks, and a big fleece jacket. It's great to be warm! Finally, I drink a lot of tea and I don't forget my gloves!

I'll be right with you...
