Yes, I would like to stay with a host family because it helps me to understand their culture and custom well. It also helps me to learn their language. Moreover, I can also share my stories with them.

i have never visited a new country but i want to travell and visit lots of country. I would like to stay with a host family so i can improve the country language, discover a new cultures, taste new food and flavor and i can visit, with them, the most important attractions of the country and they can explain it to me.

I would love to stay with a host family in a new country. I never have chance to try this experience but I believe that it will be great when we immerse ourselves in new cultures, new language and have a strongger relationship with people.

I would like to live with host family because I want to accustom with their culture and society. when we live with them we can learn everything soon and can exchange and introduce our culture with each others.

I would like visit a new country because I see different palces and learn other cultures. If I travel to English language countries it is better.

hello ,
i would like to stay in foreig country to meet diferent people because each country is diferent from other,especially for the culture however if somebody want to come here a Colombia you will notice the wonderfull people that live here.

I've been with a foreigner family before. I loved being there and I learned a lot.
it was so fun, the first week was a bit awkward though:)

I would like to stay with a host family in England because I like english and it could be big adventure for me which will provide more experience to improved my english skills level beside understand culture.

To be honest, I don't like stay with a host family in a new country. Because, I don't like interacting with many strangers. More over, I am afraid to disturbing their families. If I only stay with acquaintance online, I will invite her come to dinner with me or give her a gift . But with her family, I can't. Besides, when I stay at hotel, I will be servered by hotel and I can come to every where in every time I want.

In fact I do not like to live with a strange people but if I have a reason to do so like learning English , so I do not mind.
