Some vocabulary you may want to look up before or during this exercise:
"get together" and "dress code".

I’ll give you some sentences to translate into Spanish

  • I’ll show you where you make mistakes
  • I’ll keep track of what you need to practise
  • Change my choices if you want

How the test works

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

Before the Christmas holiday, my boss wants us to get together to have dinner. I have just received an invitation by email and the dress code says that it is obligatory to wear a Christmas jumper [US: sweater]. If they knew how much I hate those jumpers! They look ridiculous and ugly (to me) but I will have to give in and buy one for the party. I think that I am going to choose the ugliest one of all with lights and music included. To be honest, I hope that they don't take many photos because if my wife sees me dressed that way, she won't stop laughing.

I'll be right with you...
