How the test works

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

- What is your favourite musical instrument ? - I love the piano because it can be very soft and sometimes very powerful. I often listen to Beethoven and I find his music very moving. I really admire pianists because it's a lot of work. - I prefer the guitar! My favourite French band is Téléphone. I know how to play their song "Cendrillon", and it's always a success at parties!

Clever stuff happening!
