How the test works

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

My brother and I are grape pickers, we work seasonally when the time of the grape harvest arrives. We have to cut the bunches with a pruner and separate the grapes. This work requires quite a physical effort. If you don't do it right your back is going to give you problems at the end of the day because you have to spend a lot of time bending over. In our family, being a grape picker is a tradition of many generations.
