Tips

  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 would like to stay with a host family in new country. Because il's the best way to discover their culture, their cuisine and also to learn their language. So in my holidays, i prefer renting a room on the site Airbnb rather than booking a hotel . I pay a cheaper price and i feel at home. Elsewhere, on the other hand, i have many exchanges with hosts (language, culture, cuisine). Several years ago, i invited my 2 classmates of my Master to stay at my house in Vietnam. i think that they had lots of good experiences with us
