Reading text

  2. The email can have three main paragraphs:
    • the reason for writing (= to say thank you)
    • the main point (= more details or examples)
    • a wish or offer for the future.
  3. Use emojis (e.g. smiley) or emoticons (e.g. :) ) to show you’re joking.
  4. You can say See you soon / See you next year if you hope to meet again.
  5. Use a closing phrase like Keep in touch, Write soon, Speak soon or Take care.

I’d like to stay with a host family, as for me it’s an overjoyed experience and they can help me with practice my English! They can also show me the city where I am staying. I can look at and learn how other families live nowadays.

If just stay with a host family for a short while, maybe one week, it is fine for me. But if need to stay for a long time, let say over one month, I think I will just feel a bit uncomfortable, since I will think that I just like an outsider.
But I do dream for a working holiday! If I can go to a foreign country for one year, I hope I can share an apartment with several people from difference countries. I prefer living in a dormitory rather than a host family.

NO I wouldn't I can not feel comfortable and safe in someone's house

I would love to stay a while with a family that speaks English and thus learn their language and customs.

I really want and would enjoy to visit Ukraine. In this country I have a friend, and she help me once or twice a moth to practice my skill writing in English by Facebook.

Yes, I would. I think first it'll be a little uncomfortable because we'd be strangers, but once we start to know each other, it'll change. Also, staying with a host family would be an incredible opportunity to practice their language and enjoy their culture. It's sure to be a wonderful experience.

Yes, I would like to live with a host family because it will be a great experience to me and the different culture will give me benefits at my personality

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.

Yes, I am so exited to visit JAPAN and I'd like to stay with a host family to discover and to know more about the culture of this country as well as improve my Japanese language.

I really would like to stay in other country , I would love to go somewhere where is very hot weather :)
