How the test works

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

In my building, everyone is trying to help. My wife and I are healthy so we can go to the supermarket. Our neighbour Janine is seventy-nine. As she mustn't go out, she texted us a list, and we left her groceries at her door. Janine used to be a French teacher, so she decided to help the children with their schoolwork. She was already using Skype with her family, so that wasn't too complicated!

I'll be right with you...
