How the test works

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

Taking the rubbish out in Spain is lots of fun. We have to leave the house to put the rubbish in the containers that are on the street. These containers have four colours: blue is for paper and cardboard, yellow is for plastic and cans, green is for glass and grey is for the rest of the waste. Then the garbage truck passes by every night and empties the containers.

Clever stuff happening!
