How the test works

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

- Where do you want to go surfing next year? - Let's go to Biarritz in the French Basque Country! It is an ideal place because it is right next to the Atlantic Ocean. My brother went there two years ago and according to him, it's the best place for surfing in Europe. We will have to go there between October and November because that's the time when the waves are the most interesting. - That sounds great! Which beach is the best? - I think that there are two (of them): the Grande Plage and the Côte des Basques. They would be perfect for us because we are not experienced surfers. - Let's start planning our next holiday [US: vacation]!

Clever stuff happening!
