How the test works

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

- Your mother's birthday is in three weeks. What do you want us to get her this year? - I haven't got a clue... maybe a nice tea set? - We got her one two years ago. - You're right, I'd forgotten! Too bad, it would have been a great idea! - I know that she's been feeling tired lately, maybe she would like a professional massage, or some luxury cosmetics that would make her happy? - Yes, do you remember the name of that face cream that she is crazy about? - No, but we should check discreetly when we visit her next weekend.

Getting that for you now...
