How the test works

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

- The LU brand of biscuits [US: cookies] is very famous in France, and its story started in the city of Nantes. Today, you can visit its factory's tower and it's a very beautiful monument. I found the visit very interesting and I learned that LU stands for "Lieu Unique"! The exhibition also showed the history of the place and its links with the development of Nantes. Then, when you arrive inside the dome, you discover that the belvedere is mechanised and when you use the steering wheel, you can enjoy a panoramic view of the city!

I'll be right with you...
