How the test works

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

Anne Dorval is my favourite actress. She's Quebecois and she is really extraordinary! She can play everything. In "The heart has its reasons", a parody of American soap operas, she is so funny! But I also love her dramatic roles, like in Xavier Dolan's movies. In Quebec, she also dubs some American actresses like, for example, Sharon Stone and Lucy Liu. And she can sing! Extraordinary, I tell you!

Clever stuff happening!
