Yes. If I live alone in a new city, I feel quite lonely. So I think that stay with a host family is a good choice. I have an oppotunity to learn more from them, such as their cultures, history and so on. In addtion, I can improve my English
a lot. It's so nice.

I think this is a complicated issue and it is related to a different situation. For example, staying in a host family can be a new opportunity to learn a new language. But sometimes it can be an unpleasant experience, a new family may not be convincing for you, or family rules may be difficult for you. Therefore, you should think carefully when deciding to stay in the host family.

I’d like to stay with a host family, as for me it’s an overjoyed experience and they can help me with practice my English! They can also show me the city where I am staying. I can look at and learn how other families live nowadays.

If just stay with a host family for a short while, maybe one week, it is fine for me. But if need to stay for a long time, let say over one month, I think I will just feel a bit uncomfortable, since I will think that I just like an outsider. But I do dream for a working holiday! If I can go to a foreign country for one year, I hope I can share an apartment with several people from difference countries. I prefer living in a dormitory rather than a host family.
