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

Antonio Torres invented the Spanish guitar in 1850 in Spain. It is a modification of the mandolin that Vinaccia had created in 1779. The Spanish guitar has 6 strings and consists of a wooden box, a neck and a fretboard. This classic musical instrument is the base of many types of music. My brother and I love it and that's why we are going to guitar lessons. We have already learned to play several songs and next Saturday we will give a concert. The Spanish guitar is so nice to listen to!

Clever stuff underway!
