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 do you think of this house? I find that it has character, with its high ceilings and its wooden beams. - I would prefer to see it in person, because the pictures didn't convince me. I saw another one yesterday that had an attic and a cellar, which would be perfect to store all our things. - Super! If it were within our budget, I would love to have an extra room that we could use as our home office. Now that we're working from home, it should be a priority!

Getting that for you now...
