How the test works

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

My neighbour Sonia is a real nightmare! Since the day (when) she moved in, I've woken up every night! It's as if she were waiting to hear me snore (in order) to play her music at full blast! Some nights, it even sounds like she's doing DIY: she drags furniture on the floor and she bangs the walls. I can hear everything, even with ear plugs! She and I don't have the same pace of life, I understand that, but I would appreciate a bit more savoir-vivre. When I start my new job next month, I'll also start looking for a new apartment!

Getting that for you now...
