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 could learn anything I want without having to spend time doing so? That would be a dream come true, but also a real conundrum, because there are so many skills that I'd love to master. I would pick something manual and practical, something that could really be of use in my daily life, such as sewing, knitting, or even plumbing! - I'm sure my girlfriend would love for me to learn how to drive, so that we could go anywhere anytime we feel like it, but I would probably decide to hone my guitar skills. I've always dreamt of being the next Jimi Hendrix! - Without hesitation, I would become an instant universal translator as I would learn every language on the planet!
