How the test works

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

- Jean-Marc, I want to redecorate our bedroom! I've always hated the colour of the wallpaper that I find too dark and depressing. I would like something more cheerful. - I completely agree with you Pauline. And while we're at it, we should also get rid of the carpet. I've always wanted some wood flooring. - What if we went to the new home decor shop? We could select samples in order to find the best pattern. - That's an excellent idea! Let's go there together tomorrow!

I'll be right with you...
