How the test works

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

- I think we're almost ready for tomorrow morning's departure. I loaded the parasol into the car, I took the cooler out of the garage and I put it in the kitchen, next to the fridge, so that we can fill it before leaving. - I still have to finishing packing the suitcases. I was about to close them for good, when I realised that I had forgotten to wash the swimsuits! As a result, I had to start a load of laundry real quick. - It's no big deal, I'll help you finish when I'm back from the supermarket. Do you want me to get some sun lotion or will we buy some once we arrive? - It will be cheaper over there. See you in a bit!

Let me take a look at that...
