How the test works

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

I've never liked the seaside. In summer, it's full of tourists and in winter, it's just depressing! I prefer going to the mountains. The landscapes can be very different, but they're always magnificent. And there are so many activities! One can ski, hike or swim in the beautiful lakes. Last year, I went camping in the Alps and I enjoyed the quiet and wild nature. It was truly magical!

Clever stuff happening!
