How the test works

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

- The view is impressive, isn't it? - Yes! It's my first time in Paris, and I really wanted to see the Eiffel tower. I'm not disappointed! - Did you take the lift [US: elevator]? - No, we took the stairs. It was quite tiring but there were interesting panels with the Eiffel tower's history. And you, are you going to go up to the second floor? - Yes, but I'm a bit nervous because I already have vertigo!

Clever stuff happening!
