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

Last weekend, I visited my grandfather. He lives in a retirement home not very far from my university. We played cards, as usual, and he won, as always! Then, we watched "Columbo" on TV. He knows all the episodes but he's never bored! As the weather was nice, we went into the gardens to enjoy the fresh air. It was a beautiful day!

I'll be right with you...
