How the test works

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

- Since we moved here two months ago, my teenage daughter Célia has struggled to make new friends. I want to her to be happy here, but I don't really know how to help her. - It can be difficult to talk to strangers at her age. Does she have any hobbies or (any) interests? - She used to play basketball where we lived before. - So you should look up the town's basketball club. I don't think that the season has started yet, and in any case, they're always looking for talented players! - It hadn't even crossed my mind, thank you very much for this useful piece of advice!
