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 we returned from our holidays and, when we got home, what a surprise! We couldn't open the door because our key didn't work. We rang the bell and a young woman opened. We didn't know who she was! She said that she had a legal contract to live in our house. It has to be a mistake! We are going to ask the police for help and we are going to resolve this problem.

Clever stuff happening!
