Only two days till the exam and I have to admit I am not at all confident. I feel like knowledge is leaking from my head and my fluency level is declining sharply. In lessons I trip over my tongue, grope for easy words, lapse into English at the first sign of trouble. It’s a bloodbath. And yet my written Portuguese is OK. I really need to do something radical in the next two days. I’m thinking of taking the Wednesday off, painting the Portuguese flag on my chest and walking around the house naked reciting Os Lusíadas.
Wish me luck.
