Hi Pegaso

Apparently the intended meaning in this test sentence is to say "You are correct" ("You're right").

I'd say the intended meaning is not "You are writing".

BTW, have you ever met a non-native english speaker who managed to confuse write with right and othervice?

As for me, at the first time I used to pronounce w letter in write.
