How the test works

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

Today, I'm going to go food shopping [US: to go grocery shopping]. So, I must write a list. I need fruit and vegetables: ten apples, five pears, three carrots and one cauliflower. I must also buy [some] meat and [some] fish. My sons love chicken, but my husband and I prefer salmon. And I want to make a cake. For that, I'm going to buy one kilo of flour and two hundred grams of chocolate. Now, it's time to go to the supermarket!

Getting that for you now...
