Of course, staying with a native family in another country would be a great opportunity to learn their language as well as get to know their culture. It is the fastest and the most effective way to learn English too.

Of course, I really like to stay with a host family in a new country. What could be better than having a cozy home to live in when you are in a strange place? It's also a best opportunity to experience a new culture and their lifestyle, and I will share with them about mine too. One thing that cannot be omitted is a country's cuisine. I'm obsessed with food.

I would like to stay with host family. Perhaps, they would guide us to explore many places. Especially, I won’t miss important scenic places. In return I will provide them a stay when they come to my place.

In the past, I would have liked to stay with a host family, but now that I'm older, I think I can stay by myself and explore another country.

I think it would be a great adventure to stay with a host family in a new country. I feel it would help me improve my English skills. I would like to visit Canada, so this would be the place I'd go.

As I said in one comment to the earlier article I wouldn't live with neighbours and, especially, with a host family, because I feel myself as a debtor, I don't like it
