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 name is Alejandro, I'm Mexican and I'm a mariachi. To make this kind of music, I need instruments like the guitar, the guitarron, the violin and some trumpets. Sometimes, I also have to use flutes and harps. It is a very varied music and in Mexico it is very common to listen to mariachis at family gatherings, parties, serenades and on the anniversary of Independence on September 16.

Getting that for you now...
