Hi Valentina,

I just wanted to write and say thank you for your hospitality. Thank you for all the wonderful cooking you did. I hope to see you soon. If you ever come to Berlin, I hope you will stay with me. I'm sure my English improved a lot because of you.

Write soon,

Staying in a host family in other countrie would be a wonderful experience because you will learn differente food,behavior,talking culture but if you palne to be hosted more than 3 days, it will be a little bit difficulte for the hosting family to support and treat you like the first day you came in.
