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 friend Isabel and I travel to Zaragoza every weekend. That's why we always arrive early at the train station and we usually buy two return [US: round-trip] tickets at the ticket window. In order to catch the train, we need to get to platform six (in order) to board it. While we wait, we have a coffee in the station café and we chat about our lives. When the train arrives, before boarding we have to show our tickets to the (ticket) inspector and finally we find our seats in order to begin the trip. I prefer travelling by train to travelling by car because it's faster and more comfortable.

Clever stuff happening!
