How the test works

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

Today is April 23. That's why this morning I went to the [town] centre [in order] to visit the library and borrow an interesting book. Also, since I live in Catalonia, I bought a rose for my girlfriend because tradition says that men have to give a rose to women. I love celebrating World Book Day, every year I enjoy it a lot and I find good books that are worth having.

I'll be right with you...
