How the test works

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

- The downstairs neighbour has just called me because she noticed a water mark on her ceiling which seems to be located under our bathroom. - What a pain! It's a good thing she saw it, otherwise we'd never have known [about it]. - Yes, now we need to call a plumber in so that he can find where the leak is coming from. - I really hope that there won't be too much damage and that our insurance will cover the expenses. - We should turn the main water supply off in the meantime so that the problem doesn't get worse. - I'll take care of that right now while you call the plumber.
