Yes. I would. If its a visit, but if am going to reside in that country I will sought out for my accommodation.

Yes, of course! I'm going to go abroad to learn English in September 2020

I would like to stay with a host family in England. This experience allows me a good framwork to learn english. Also, there is an opportunity to visit london and their historic places

If I have chance to go to a new city, I want to live with host family. I think every country will have a culture different. It is dificult to understand alone. If there is someone show you how to do so you can do easily more.

No I don't like to do so . I can stay with them the hole day but at the end sleep in a hotel

I would like to stay with a host family because I like be friends with them and that is an easy way to learn language and customs.

I would like to stay with a host family in USA because i want to improve my English and my vocabulary and pass the TOEFL test here in Mexico, Therefore, I had a bettersweet experience that I could not say the words that I thought. so I think it is important to improve my English.

I'm a very shy person so it would be a bit awkward at first but I still would love to have that experience. To meet new people from a different culture and practise english with locals. I think it's a great way to learn the real language.

Yes, i would like to stay with a host family in other country to learning English!
