How the test works

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

I would love to live abroad one day, because I think that it would really enrich my life. Indeed, experiencing other ways of living and other cultures can only help to broaden one's horizons by opening one's mind to different points of view. I think it's important to challenge the preconceptions that we can have because of where we're born. In order to put oneself in someone else's shoes, what could be better than sharing their lives? I would also make sure to pick a country where the language is different from mine, so that the immersion is total.

Getting that for you now...
