How the test works

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

If I had my own house, I know exactly what I would do in order to create my perfect garden. To start with, I would have a terrace with a barbecue made of white stone. In summer, it would be great! I would also like an herb garden where I would plant some mint, (some) basil and (some) parsley. Nothing beats fresh ingredients! And of course, lots of colourful flowers: blood-red roses, bright yellow daffodils, dark blue pansies and my favourite of all, white lilies!

Clever stuff happening!
