Topic： some intensive English Programs in the United States offer a foreign Student the option of living with an American family while he or she is studying abroad. Many students feel that such a home-stay program is a valuable part of their totle learning experience. however， others may feel that such a plan offers little value. in a short essay， discuss one or two advantages of living with an American family and then state one or two diadvantages. Tell whether youare in favor of or opposed to the idea of home-stay. give examples to support your opinion.
Every year， many foreign students go to America to study English. Some of this（them） will participate in a home-stay program and live with an American family. However， others will take（make） a different decision. They will live with friends from their own country. I believe that if a foreign student looks at both possibilities， he will decided to live with an American family. Even though there are one or two backwards to home-stay way（opinion）， there are far more benefits.
In taking（making） his decision about how to live in the United States， the foreign student is smart（wise） to consider one or two disadvantages to live with an American family. First of all， he must realise that he is going to feel homesick at first. Living in an American home with people of other（another） language and culture may cause this feeling to increase. Also the American family could become very protective of him. They may ask him where he is going when he leaves home and when he will return. Despite these two disadvanges， there is a stronger idea（argument） in favor of living with Americans.
By living in an american（American） home， the student has （has an）opportunity to become familiar with American customs and culture. For instance， he will learn how improtant the（the importance of） family closeness is（closeness）。 He can see how the children communicate with their parents and how the parents educate their children. He will not feel like a stranger because the American family will help him adjusting（adjust） to a new life.
Inan American home， he can learn English fast. Family members can help him with his homeworks（homework）。 When he speaks English， they can point（point out）his errors. In this way， he can learn English naturally.
Although there are some disadvantage（disadvantages） to live in an American family， there are heavier（greater） benefits. If the foreign student at first realises the value of learning about a new culture and improving his English at the same time， he will definitely choose to experience a home-stay in the United States. With an American family， he will find studying there a very big（rewarding）experience.
