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

- Three years ago, I had the opportunity to visit the Lascaux Cave. I was impressed by the beauty of this place where I saw the most wonderful prehistoric paintings in my life. The public hasn't had access to the original cave for a long time because the paintings had become too fragile and hard to protect, but a complete reconstitution of the cave has been open since 2016. You should really go there with your grandchildren! - You think? I am not convinced that it is a good choice. I think that they'd prefer somewhere like the Puy du Fou. Although they are passionate about history, they're still young, and they get bored very easily. The shows and the actors in period costumes would hold their attention more. Next time I see them, I'll ask them what they prefer!

I'll be right with you...
