I don't have any self-confidence right now. I want to get the proper certificates for a job teaching English, but I'm afraid that I won't perform well when I talk to the person evaluating oral proficiency. I don't even have the courage to go to the English Corner, because I think there will be someone there who is better than I am. I don't want to be a loser, but I feel as if I am already a loser.
Is the second "there" in the paragraph redundant?
Why or why not?
Thanks a lot

The sentence sounds fine to me. If you still would rather change it:
"...because I'm afraid someone will be there who is better than I am.
To me too. The first 'there' is a kind of preparatory subject; the second means 'in that location'.
