How the test works

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

My name comes from a Germanic tribe, the Franks. My flag is blue, white and red. My national anthem's name is "La Marseillaise". I am a democracy, and French people elect a president. I own eighteen regions and one hundred and one departments, and I have 67 million inhabitants in 2019. I share my borders with eight countries: Belgium, Luxemburg, Italy, Spain, Germany, Switzerland, Monaco and Andorra. I love bread, wine and cheese! There are about four hundred varieties of French cheese, and French people drink, on average, forty-three litres of wine per year!

I'll be right with you...
