How the test works

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

After a plane ride of more than 12 hours, I have finally arrived in Buenos Aires. It is a huge city! When I left the airport, I ordered a taxi and I travelled through its most emblematic places. First, we passed through the Plaza de Mayo and then we saw the Palermo neighbourhood. How beautiful they are! Tonight, I'm going to eat barbecue and I'm going to see a Boca Juniors match.

Clever stuff happening!
