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

- Are you ready for your first lesson? - We are a bit nervous but ready! - OK, so let's start with the basics. Your skis must be parallel. Now, lean forward and bend your knees slightly. Don't forget to look in front of you, and use your poles to maintain your balance. - It's not that easy! - No, but we just need some practice. - Exactly Yvan! Take your time and stay relaxed!
