As far as I'm concerned, the knowledge about psychology such as positive psychology should be taught in school but hasn't been taught already at least in my place. Positive psychology tells us how to live a happier life and encourages us to focus on the thing that makes us happy both now and in the future. Besides that, It will help students not only to focus on the score which drives many students anxious including me.

As far as I'm concerned, practical psychology, such as positive psychology, should be taught in school, but isn't being taught yet, at least in my place. Positive psychology tells us how to live a happier life and encourages us to focus on what makes us happy both now and in the future. Besides that, It will help students avoid focusing too much on grades, a practice that makes many students anxious (including me).
Your pronunciation is very accurate and easy to understand, with the usual issues presented by Chinese native speakers (you need to work on connecting your words together smoothly). Some of your vowels were a bit off, for example the vowel in “live” was too tense, sounding more like “leave”. Besides that, you seem to have merged the vowels of “not” and “thought”. This is extremely common in the US (about 40% of the population has the merger), and almost universal in Canada, although I prefer to teach them as separate phonemes (cot /kɑt/versus taught /tɔt/). The way you did it sounds almost like Canadian accent (with both sounds realized as /ɒ/), so it’s no big deal. Your grammar was mostly OK, so I mainly made some stylistic suggestions, while trying not to change your writing too much.
