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 love, I had a great idea! Why not camp in the garden with the kids instead of going to a campsite this weekend? - Oh, what a wonderful suggestion! We won't need to pack up all the equipment to make it fit in the car, and we will have everything at hand: the sleeping bags, the tent and the flashlights. Plus, we won't be forced to use any disgusting sanitary blocks [US: campground restrooms] because our toilets [US: bathroom] will be available! - Yes! And if the kids aren't comfortable, they will be able to go back in the house. - They are going to be so happy!

I'll be right with you...
