How the test works

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

Tomorrow, I will go to the shopping center [US: the mall] and I'll have a look at mobile [US: cell] phones. I'll need to buy a new one, as I lost mine on the train yesterday. I should maybe call the train company to ask them to check the lost and found. However, they probably won't find it: people rarely return brand-new smartphones. But I will still call them just in case. And this time, I should really insure my phone, and I could be more careful with my stuff, especially when it cost me an arm and a leg!

Let me take a look at that...
