Yes!! I would like to stay with a host family in a new country. it will be great experience and opportunities to know about their culture. actually I did it once in Australia. I stayed with host mother and another student. I can't forget that time as it was my first time to live in a new country. they are nice and kind. and I have to speak English every time even if I couldn't speak or understand. It was good way to improve English and motivate me to study English.
