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

I made my decision: next year, I'll go study abroad! At uni [US: In college], teachers used to encourage students to spend six months or a year in a foreign country, but it scared me a little. After all, I've never lived more than twenty kilometres away from my parents' house! I don't know what I would do without my mother who takes care of everything for me! But when my best friend Miriam decided to do it, she convinced me to follow her! Yesterday, we bought our plane tickets for September 10, and now, I can't wait to be there!

Clever stuff happening!
