    • a wish or offer for the future.

Of course, It seems to me an extraordinary experience. Early this year, I stayed one month in the US with a family, it was an incredible experience. We ate, traveles and knew new places. It was wonderful.

Yes, sure. I would be a great experiance if I have that great opportunity. I believe that my English will improve a lot because I'd have many chances to speaking and listening to native speakers.

I've had an experience being at someone's house. Our host were my father's friends. My siblings and I lived with them for a week. They were a wonderful family and we had great time. We went to sightseeing and picnic almost every day. Those were such wonderful days. When we left their house we were really sad and I really missed them

Idk, I think I prefer staying in a local hotel. Being with strangers, in another country and in a different culture seems a little scared for me.

Hi Bob,
I just wanted to say thank you for the successful team building. We had a great time. We had many outdoor activities to connect team members. I had a delicious dinner with my favorite foods. Although I feel a bit tired I am very happy.
I am very ready for the next team building.

Yes, I want to stay with host family in another country to improve my speaking skill. I'd love living with host family because I've lived in the hostel when I was university student.

I take in any opportunity that appears, so I´d love to stay with a host family. But everything has pros and cons. I could improve my english and lose my fear of speaking, but it´s dangerous. I wouldn´t know the hosts very much. Also, i like to have my privacy and my freedom.

It would be a pleasure for me to stay with a host family in an English-speaking country. That would help me improve my English listening and speaking skills. It would be an amazing experience and a great opportunity to know about the culture, traditions and life style of the new country, as well.

Yes, of course, because I should learn the new country language and cultures and that is could be learning from the country's people
