How the test works

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

Yesterday I read an amazing article in a decoration magazine. It talked about the use of [the] colours on the kitchen walls to get different effects. For example, the writer said that blue colour is soft and relaxing, orange colour is for daring personalities and white colour is very classic and traditional. This analysis seems very interesting (to me)! I am going to read this magazine more in the future. How exciting!
