How the test works

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

- Hello. I spilled some red wine on my suit jacket yesterday. I would have tried to clean it myself, but my wife suggested that I leave it to the professionals. - And I think your wife was right, Sir. This is indeed quite a large stain and you wouldn't want to ruin such a nice jacket. Luckily, the stain doesn't look too deep so I'm sure our expert will be able to remove it easily. - I would need it for a dinner on Saturday, is that too last minute? - Not at all! Come back tomorrow morning, I'll have it ready for you!

Let me take a look at that...
