Skip to 0 minutes and 1 second Hello and welcome to this little test. It’s really easy so don’t get it wrong. You should play this video without stopping. But first you’ll need a pen and some paper to write your answers on. I’ll give you a few moments to get that sorted. [MUSIC] Almost ready, let’s begin.
