How the test works

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

Who are quarantennials? They are babies born during the lockdown in Spain. Now they live in the new normal, with masks and hydroalcoholic gels. Usually they don't see their grandparents because they are people [who are] vulnerable to the virus. They are special children that do not receive many visits but their parents post photos and videos on social media. It is going to be a very technological generation.
