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 learning to play the guitar. It's quite difficult because I'm a bit old to start playing an instrument. I don't know the [music] notes, so I must practise a lot. In the evening, I revise [US: review, practice] my scores, and I see my teacher Felipe on Saturdays. I like the guitar, because I find that it's an interesting instrument. I'm happy with my progress, and I think I am quite good.

Getting that for you now...
