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

- Hi Armelle! It's raining again! - Yes, it's a bit depressing. Luckily, I have my umbrella and my new wellington boots [US: rubber boots]. - They are beautiful! (As for) Me, I must buy a new pair. - Do you want to go to the shopping centre [US:mall]? - Yes, that's a very good idea! When the weather's bad like this, I prefer to stay inside. - Can we go and have a coffee? - OK, but it's on me!
