How the test works

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

It is the last day of the December long weekend. We live in Madrid, and we're returning from spending a week in Valencia. Now there is a lot of traffic around Madrid, with long traffic jams. I can see a policeman at the end of the road giving directions. I don't like traffic jams, they are very boring.

I'll be right with you...
