Would you like…? / I’d like…

Saying ‘Would you like…?’ is the same as saying ‘Do you want…?’

We use ‘Would you like…?’ to offer things.

 

Examples:

 

  • Would you like some tea? = Do you want some tea?

  • Would you like a slice of pizza? = Do you want a slice of pizza?

  • Would you like to stay over at my house on the weekend? = Do you want to stay over at my house on the weekend.

  • Would you like to use my pen? = Do you want to use my pen?

  • Would you like to borrow my laptop? = Do you want to borrow my laptop?

 

We use ‘Would you like to…?’ to invite somebody for something.

 

Examples:

 

  • Would you like to go for a jog tomorrow morning?

  • Would you like to have brunch with me on Saturday?

  • Would you like to come over for dinner tomorrow evening?

  • Would you like to go out for coffee?

  • Would you like to come to my birthday party?

 

When you say ‘I’d like…’ instead of ‘I want’, it is more polite and not rude.

I’d like = I would like.

 

Examples:

 

  • I’m hungry. I’d like to eat something.

  • I’m thirsty. I’d like a drink.

  • I’m really tired. I’d like to go to sleep.

  • I’d like to go to grandma’s house on the weekend.

  • I’d like to stay at my friend’s house on Friday night.
