How the test works

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

- Hello Marc! You work as a tour operator. Would you have some advice for our listeners who are going to travel abroad this summer? - Yes Jackie! You should always have a bit of cash on you. We often assume that we will always be able to pay by card, which is a big mistake. To avoid bad surprises, I always check exchange rates and my bank's transaction and conversion fees. I also like to know if there will be ATMs close to where I'm going. Finally, getting an e-wallet is an excellent backup solution. - Thank you Marc, what good advice!

I'll be right with you...
