  1. Start with Hi if it is an informal email to someone you know.
  2. The email can have three main paragraphs:
    • the reason for writing (= to say thank you)
    • the main point (= more details or examples)
    • a wish or offer for the future.
  3. Use emojis (e.g. smiley) or emoticons (e.g. :) ) to show you’re joking.

Yes, I would to stay with a host family in a new country.
Because I can directly touch the culture of the country. Also, spending time with your host family will improve my language learning. There are advantages and disadvantages as well. It is the difference in food culture and life. Since I am from Japan, rice is my staple food. However, the staple food in America and Britain is potato. Or bread. It's a completely different diet from Japan, so it will take some time to get used to it. Also, Japan has a custom of taking a bath, but most countries do showers. Many countries place importance on water, and the shower time is as long as 10 minutes. I used to feel that boiling water was normal, but I was surprised to hear that it was unusual. And the number of times the laundry is turned is different. In Japan, we often use the washing machine, but overseas we only use the washing machine once a week. I feel confused when studying abroad because there are many differences in culture and lifestyle. However, what was taken for granted in Japan is not taken for granted abroad, so I felt I should respond flexibly. I think that only a home stay can enjoy such everyday life, so I would like to do a home stay.

Yes, Of course. I won't miss this chance if I'll get it. I would like to visit London.

thank you for useful information

Certainly, I really like to move to Canada, before it will visit and probably stay at in a family house.

Undoubtedly I won't miss this opportunity if I have got this chance. Because I always love to know about new cultures and explore something new. Without staying in any host family in a new country, it will be very tough to know about the new culture of that country.

it will be a gorgeous opportunity I will have a great experience and I will know more and more about their culture, I would like to develop my English too.

Of course I would, I wish to stay in a British's house.

Of course. I want to travel another country like a tourist but if I have opportunity of live with a host family, I'm going to help them in all.

Of course, Yes but with the respectable family that's trying to kept up your privacy. Also, living in isolated suite or room to feel more confident in that place.

Wish you all enjoy with your future trip.
