No, I would not. I prefer to stay in a hotel with my space and privacy but if I had not an option, I would like to stay a short time.

I definitely do. I'd be thrilled to stay with an English native speaker family in Canada or England. I'm absolutely fascinated by those countries and staying with a host family would allow me to make the most of my visit, it would be an amazing way to get out of my comfort zone practising my English in the most effective way possible. Moreover, it would be a great opportunity to have contact with new people and discover a completely different culture from mine.
