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 really like children's poetry. Every night, I read to my son a few verses from Gloria Fuertes. These verses are called Couples and they go as follows: every bee with his partner, every (male) duck with his (female) duck, every (male) seal with his (female) seal, every plate with its cup, every river with its estuary, every (male) cat with his (female) cat, etc. These rhymes are very easy and fun to learn.
