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 like my neighbourhood because it's very lively! When you want to go out, you have a lot of options. You can go to the cinema [in order] to see a film, or if you prefer sports, there's also a basketball court, an ice rink and a swimming pool. I don't like sports, but my sister goes swimming every Saturday. My friends and I prefer to stay at my place [in order] to play video games!
