How the test works

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

- Now that summer is approaching, I think that it might be time to go back to the gym! - Yeah, I was thinking the same thing! I put on a few unwanted kilos this winter... - I don't regret the weekly raclettes at all, but they unfortunately turned into love handles... - Ideally, I'd like to lose three or four kilos. - Let's start by going [there] twice a week? - Yes, I agree. We should go [there] tomorrow. First, I'll run on the treadmill for half an hour, then I'll carry on with a few series of abs. And you? - I'll warm up on the treadmill too, and I'll do fifty or so push-ups! - See you tomorrow then!

Getting that for you now...
