How the test works

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

- I've just checked the weather forecast, and the snow should be epic this weekend! - Fantastic! I can't wait to try my new skis. What time will you pick us up on Saturday? - I'll be there around 8.30am. This year, I'll go down the black ski run that was closed last year. Will you be brave enough to do it with me? - Yeah, yeah, I will go so fast, I'll leave you behind! - Do you want to bet? - OK, the loser will pay for all the drinks!

Let me take a look at that...
