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

I already know what we'll do when we come to visit you in Paris! The day we arrive at your place, you'll take us to the foot of the Eiffel Tower, where we'll take pictures together, then we'll go have lunch in a bistrot of your choosing and I'll be able to order a rare steak at last! We'll spend the rest of the day in the Louvre Museum. I've always dreamt of visiting it! On the second day, we'll take the train to Versailles, and we'll admire Louis XIV's palace. Then, we'll have a walk in its magnificent gardens And of course, while we are with you, we'll only speak French!
