How the test works

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

Tomorrow, I'm going back to school. I am a bit sad, because it's the end of the holiday [US: vacation], but I'm also happy because I'm going to see my friend Thomas again. He is tall and strong, and he always makes funny jokes! My new school bag is blue and yellow: those are my favourite colours. And I also have a big pencil case, with a bendy ruler, two pencils, and a beautiful green fountain pen!
