How the test works

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

Today, we're cleaning the house. My mother hoovers [US: vacuums], my father does the dishes, my sister Lisa tidies her bedroom and I clean the bathroom. Then, we take care of the laundry: I take the clothes out of the washing machine and Lisa fills the tumble dryer. Then, Dad irons his shirts and Mum [US: Mom] folds the rest of the clothes. And after all that work, we go to the restaurant!
