How the test works

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

My parents Isabelle and Jean-Luc are retired and they live in Gallardon, in France. My mother is very affectionate and she likes gardening. My father is quite chatty and sociable, and he loves organising (some) barbecues. I also have a brother and a sister. My sister's name is Gabrielle and she's studying at Tours's university. My brother Mathis is ten years old and we get along really well. He's so funny!

Clever stuff happening!
