Beth yw'r gair Cymraeg am PANIC.
The longest three minutes of my life is approaching. Fast. Three minutes talking Welsh, in front of a bona fide Welsh speaker (rather than the forgiving dog I'm used to, who always wags her tail politely). This Welsh speaker will listen to me - and worse, will then ask me questions. I'm going to faint. The oral is worth a weighty 50% of the total marks - to be recorded and assessed externally. Oh joy. Someone else will hear my umms and ahhs, the long silences, the "Dw i ddim yn gwybod" - repeated often, my nervous coughs, my weak guttural ch and my lazy r.
And to think I registered for the exam voluntarily. Was I temporarily insane? Will Wenglish work? #fail.
