    2. I have some corrections for you, but this is really, really good! Change "which" to "that" "This school is a distinguished boys’ high school that mainly aims to have students enter famous universities." This is in the past (and Neil is no longer alive) so use past tense: "One student named Neil, who was diligent, gentle and smart, but would do everything his father said, was inspired by it and decided to pursue his passion, which was theater." Always use a comma before a conjunction like "but" that combines two complete sentences: "Then he got the main part in a school play, but his father forbade him from participating in it." This sounds more natural: "This time he disobeyed him and performed in the play." You use "he" quite a bit. I can tell when you're talking about Neil rather than when you're talking about the father, but it might be clearer if you use "Neil" instead of "he" more often. "which made him commit suicide" is okay, but I think "so he committed suicide" makes more sense. I made some other corrections too: "With this, he was crushed and had no hope in living the mundane life his father had decided for him, so he committed suicide." Change to past tense: "... how great it was to pursue his passion." Change "wants" to past tense. "As he got to know such a passionate and great teacher, he was able to find what he wanted to work hard at." Change "which" to "that". "Participating in the school play is probably the first thing that he decided to do against his father's wishes." "It is really wonderful that he was able to know how great it is to make his own decisions, even if it ironically caused his death." "It is obvious that Mr. Keating taught much more important things than the other teachers, who mechanically taught only what they were supposed to teach, and gave light to him." I'd get rid of "and gave light to him" in the previous sentence because it's at the end of such a long sentence. It's up to you though. "... even though the principal ordered them to stop." You're talking about a past event that happened before another past event, so use "had asked". "They remembered that Mr. Keating had asked the students to call him “Oh captain, my captain” as a joke." "Unfree" is in the dictionary, but it sounds odd, so I'd avoid using it. "... which kept them from being free." Change "obedience" to "disobedience". "They took action on their own just as Neil did and Mr. Keating taught."

    2. Foreigners find that Japanese people do not take risks in making revolutionary videos. Instead, they create many mundane television programs.

They always make common comments, such as “It’s fabulous” and never make critical criticism which makes it sound like every restaurant sound delicious.

    2. The evocative snapshots- snapshots are another word for photographs- but also means a moment in time. Here’s the definition: a casual photograph made typically by an amateur with a small handheld camera 2 : an impression or view of something brief or transitory a snapshot of life back then Evocative means - bringing string memories or feelings to mind. Comes from the verb to evoke. Meaning the same, evocative just is an adjective to describe the thing that is evoking, in this case- the belongings left behind- the evidence of daily life interrupted with no expectation of sudden death of everyone in the household. A moment in time. A simple breakfast, a morning routine like we all have - a life never resumed. Cut off. Done. So it’s saying that’s what’s making this entry- not sure why they say entry- unless it’s a story in a collection or an entry into an art gallery- this case let’s say, this particular story so eerie- eerie being scary in a haunted kind of way, spooky - because of the fact that the details in the story - that it’s highlighting the mundane (ordinary, every- day) aspects of life. The actual incident isn’t eerie they are saying- they drove off a cliff. Tragic yes, scary, yes- but basic facts The eerie part is- describing in the story how u feel if u were to walk in someone’s home where the whole family died- and see their life laid out in front of your eyes- their simple object- breakfast dishes, projects unfinished, toys out with the expectation of being played with again- but instead u are walking through a tomb
