How the test works

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

Yesterday, I took my grandmother to buy a mobile phone. Hers didn't work any more, and she wanted my help choosing her new phone. So, we went to a shop and I showed her the different models. "They're very expensive, these phones!" "Yes Granny, but it's because you can go on the internet, or watch movies with smartphones now." She replied [to me] that she wanted a phone, not a computer! But when I explained [to her] that she could see her grandson on video, she was finally convinced!

Clever stuff happening!
