Hi Lukas,
I just want to say thank you for having me stay at your nice house.
I have a good time in your house, everybody in your family treat good with me, it’s make me feel like in my house. I gave a lot of experience so that I can’t remember. Especially, I really was improved lots of English in your house.
To be honest, I was so happy last night and I hope you to stay at my house if you come to my country.
Take care!

Would you like to stay with a host family in a new country?
I prefer staying with a best friend in a new country at best friend's house, it’s so amazing. If I can do that I think not only my Eng skill will be fast improved but also learn new thing as the culture, customs, people, etc.

Of course no, I don't.
I'm an introvert. But I agree that is a good idea to stay with family for language practice.

It's a new question and I'm excited. I haven't go away yet but I think it's good to stay in with a host family in a new country. It should be funny because he/she'll teach me his/her country's culture or unless they do, i'll ask them. Also, in my imagination, leaving in new country or travel in that place for a short time should be ideal. I can improve my English and meet a lot of friends and visitors. Yes, it's right when the first friend i'll run into is the host family. in conclusion, i think it's a sensible case when you fisrt stay in with a host family in a new country!

Sure! I would like to stay with host family in a new country. In my opinion it's the best option when you study a new language. It's not only English lessons, it's something more. You have a good opportunity to learn a culture, history and tradition from your new mentors. As a bonus you have a opportunity to build a strong relationships with this people and stay in touch for many years.

Of course, staying with a native family in another country would be a great opportunity to learn their language as well as get to know their culture. It is the fastest and the most effective way to learn English too.

Of course, I really like to stay with a host family in a new country. What could be better than having a cozy home to live in when you are in a strange place? It's also a best opportunity to experience a new culture and their lifestyle, and I will share with them about mine too. One thing that cannot be omitted is a country's cuisine. I'm obsessed with food.

I would like to stay with host family. Perhaps, they would guide us to explore many places. Especially, I won’t miss important scenic places. In return I will provide them a stay when they come to my place.
