How the test works

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

- Yesterday, I watched a compilation of François Damiens's old videos where he used to frame strangers with a hidden camera. - Oh yes, "François l'Embrouille"! He was so good! I love the one when he worked at a train station ticket counter. When he asked the man to touch the mic with his mouth, I was crying from laughing! - That was so funny! But I think that my favourite sketch is the tattoo artist. People's faces when they discovered his ridiculous drawings! - It's obvious that they didn't know that it was a joke, and his justifications were just hilarious! What a perfect hidden camera!

Getting that for you now...
