How the test works

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

Many Mexicans are [located] in the United States, because they aspire to a better future. Therefore Spanish is spoken in quite a few states and several Hispanic festivals are regularly celebrated. I really think that Mexican cuisine is very well known in American society, for example burritos, tacos and enchiladas. These dishes are extremely tasty! My neighbors are the owners of the best Mexican restaurant in the whole state of California, so they are very happy to have fulfilled their particular American dream. If I had not lived so many years in the United States, I would not have been able to meet many Mexicans both at school and at work.

Getting that for you now...
