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

- Hello, I need to change some money please. I wanted to go to my bank in the United States, but I didn't have time before my trip. I brought 500 dollars with me. How many euros can I have? - At today's exchange rate, that makes 455.40 euros. And if you change one thousand dollars, the exchange rate is more advantageous. - Thank you, but 500, (that) is enough. - Do you prefer 50-euro notes or 100-euro notes? - I would like a mix please. - Here is your money. Goodbye!
