How the test works

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

You couldn't find anyone more nervous than Luc last Tuesday. After having met Olivia a week earlier, he couldn't sleep nor eat any more: he no longer thought of anything but her! And that Tuesday, he was supposed to meet her to have a drink... All afternoon, he'd rehearsed in his head what he was going to tell her. Two hours before their date, he didn't know what to do any more to pass the time: he'd taken out the garbage, he'd changed three times, with his shirt tucked into his trousers [US: pants] or not, then he'd decided not to wear a shirt after all... Only one thing was sure, he wouldn't miss his chance!

Clever stuff happening!
