How the test works

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

I love my cousin Benjamin. He's sixteen, and he lives in the United States! It's great! When he comes to France for the holiday [US: for vacation], he tries to speak French, and I speak English with him. It's rather difficult, but I learn a lot of new words! Benjamin wants to be bilingual one day, so he asks questions all the time. We make progress together: it's very motivating!

Getting that for you now...
