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

- Hello! May I help you? - Hello! My son is going to take tennis lessons this year, so he needs a racket and an outfit. - Very good. How old is he? - He's nine, but he's quite tall for his age. - If it's not the right size, you can always come back. - Yes, you're right. I like that pair of trainers [US: sneakers], but he doesn't like green. Do you have this model in blue? - I'll check.

Clever stuff happening!
