    Is there any grammatical mistakes here?

    If there is, edit it please:

    Since the eleventh month last year, my boyfriend, sponsored by state, began taking a refresher course abroad for a year. Meanwhile I encountered another boy, who, knowing that I had a boyfriend, has still been courting me with an unstinting effort. Finally I agreed to start dating with him. Now my boyfriend is about to return home and I don't know how to face this boy.

    It's a bit ambiguous but I'm assuming that by "this boy", at the end, you mean the new boy who you now wish to stop dating. Rather than just correct the grammar, I'll try to phrase it a little more naturally.

    "In November last year my boyfriend began a one-year, state-sponsored refresher course abroad. Meanwhile, I met another boy who insisted on courting me despite knowing that I had a boyfriend. Finally, I agreed to start dating him, but now my boyfriend is about to return home and I don't know what to say to the second boy."

    If by "this boy" you mean your original boyfriend, then:
    "… Finally, I agreed to start dating him. Now I don't know how to face my boyfriend who is about to return home."

    Good luck.
