How the test works

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

We have just arrived at my granny's house. She lives in a mountain village and it is very cold in winter. Her house has two floors and, to warm up, she uses the fireplace. This is a place to make the fire in the kitchen, and thus heat the whole house, but we need to get enough firewood from the yard to make the fire. Soon we are going to be very nice and warm!

Clever stuff happening!
