I would love to live with a host family.

When I was searching for language courses in Korea, one company advertised being able to stay with a host family that can accommodate you. I found it interesting because not only will the host family help you in learning the language, they would also cook for you and show you around must visit places. If given the opportunity, I actually want to try it.

Hi BC,

Many thanks for your Explanation and Discussion session.

Most of the people believe that staying with host family in another country would be a bit difficult.

Whereas that would be a challenge and adventure for who want to. Also ,as I would like to seek 

challenges every day , that would be suit with me. That's why , I love to do so.

tourism I would stay with a host family without any problem. 

Thanks for the lesson.

Yes, if I have a chance I would like to stay with a host family in a new country. It will be my new experience and a chance to improve my English too.

I don't know. But I don't think I want to. I am uncomfortable living with a stranger especially since I don't want to bother someone I am not close with.
