Reading text

Tips

  1. Start with Hi if it is an informal email to someone you know.
  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.

Hello,
I believe that would be a valuable experience because it will give me the chance to improve my English, try local food, and meet native people.

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.

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!
Lucie

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.
