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'm learning to play the guitar. It's quite difficult because I'm a bit old to start [learning] an instrument. I don't know the [music] notes, so I must practise a lot.

I'm happy with my progress, and I hope to continue like this!
