How the test works

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

I'm in my neighborhood laundromat [UK: launderette] doing laundry. In the room, there are washing machines and dryers. I have to insert some euro coins and wait an hour to pick up the laundry. It smells very good like detergent and fabric softener. I think that I'm going to use fabric softener this time because it's beneficial for the clothes. In my opinion, the laundromat [UK: launderette] is a very practical service.

I'll be right with you...
