How the test works

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

- My friend Yoann told me a strange story yesterday. I think that he must have hit his head! - Really? What happened? - Last week, while he was taking a walk in the Broceliande forest, a little goblin jumped out of an enormous bush (while) singing a merry tune in Breton. He introduced himself like this: "My name is Morgan the Korrigan. Give me all your money, otherwise I will cast a bad spell on you!" - That's crazy! What did Yoann do? - He ran away as fast as possible! But since then, he's had no end of problems...
