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.

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
