I will try to write something by myself in English. There is only about 2 months for me to prepare for a university interview which will be bilingual, English and Japanese. So I have to improve my spoken English level and this is why I came here. I have already had an interview of another university in Japan last Saturday and I felt myself didn't do well. I am not so fond of that university, actually. I just need a visa. But the one which I am facing is my favorite(?) and I must pass the interview. Well, though I said "must", I even don't know if I would be in the range of candidates. I took a TOEFL exam last summer and got only 82, which is not bad for studying in Japan but only "not bad". It is too difficult to speak anything frequently for me so I got only 16 in speaking. I am 22 years old now and even not in college. Like everyone else, I went to a university in China when I was 18. But I dropped out due to severe anxiety(which could not be told to the next university I admitted) and I tried to restart my life(?) at the age of 20 by studying abroad in Japan, then I ran into COVID-19. So 2 years have passed and my old classmates are going to graduate from university this summer while I am still a "high school graduate". If I can't pass this interview I would lose everything I had sacrificed. I must enter a better university than the one I have been in or everything I did will get in vain but I can't use so much energy(because of my anxiety or so what) to take more admission exams. Maybe I haven't work hard at all, or I don't know how to work. I felt my inside self "died" when I was 19, at that time I was on a trip in Tokyo and I suddenly felt I had lost my enthusiasm of strolling in bookstores, which had been my favorite activity in high school.

I will try to write something by myself in English. There are only about 2 months for me to prepare for a university interview which will be in both English and Japanese. Therefore, I have to improve my level of spoken English and that's why I came here. I already had an interview at another university in Japan last Saturday and I felt I didn't do well. I am actually not so fond of that university. I just need a visa. The university with the upcoming interview is my favorite; I must pass the interview. Well, although I said "must", I don't even know if I would be in the range of candidates. I took a TOEFL exam last summer and got only 82, which is not bad for studying in Japan. It is too difficult to speak English fluently for me so I got only 16 in speaking. I amv22 years old now and not even in college. Like everyone else, I went to a university in China when I was 18 but dropped out due to severe anxiety. The next university I was admitted in could not be told about this. I tried to start a fresh at the age of 20 by studying abroad in Japan, but then I ran into COVID-19. Two years have passed and my old classmates are going to graduate from university this summer while I will still be a high school graduate. If I don't pass this interview I will lose everything I have sacrificed. I must enter a better university than the one I have been in or else everything I did will be in vain. However, I can't use so much energy to take more admission exams because of my anxiety. Maybe I haven't worked hard enough, or perhaps I don't know how to work. I felt like a part of me died when I was 19. At that time I was on a trip in Tokyo and I suddenly felt I had lost my enthusiasm for strolling into bookstores, which had been my favorite activity in high school.
