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 best friend Pierre, who until last year shared a 2-bedroom apartment with me in Paris, has been living in Brussels for five months, where he got a position at the European Commission. Although I'm obviously very happy for him - I know how much he wanted this job - I miss our Netflix and pizza nights! So when he gave me a Eurostar ticket for my birthday, I was over the moon ! He wanted me to come at Easter, because he didn't think I'd be able to get time off work before then, but I managed to bargain with my boss and I should be able to go [there] just in time for New Year's! I can't wait to see his face on Skype when I tell him!

Let me take a look at that...
