How the test works

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

Tonight, I am at the premiere of a movie and I'm admiring the stars on the red carpet. The actress is wearing a long golden dress. I also love her hairdo. She is very elegant! Her male colleague's outfit is quite original. He is wearing a velvet tuxedo. It's dark purple like an aubergine [US: eggplant], and he also has purple shoes. But I prefer the female director's skirt: it's made of pictures from the movie! That's a brilliant idea!

Getting that for you now...
