How the test works

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

In many Mexican households, traditional songs are commonly heard, including rancheras, cumbias and corridos. Rancheras usually feature highly emotional lyrics and are performed by popular singers. Cumbias are infectious and lively, making them a popular choice. Corridos, on the other hand, narrate love stories, heartbreak, tragedies, heroic exploits, among others. Narrative elements are fundamental in this musical genre. Music can vary significantly depending on the region, but, in general, the songs are happy and festive and they invite you to dance and celebrate.
