Summary

Usamos would like para expresar nuestras solicitudes o proposiciones de manera más educada, que no sea tan fuerte como want.

Usamos estructuras diferentes:

  • Afirmativo: empezamos con el sujeto seguido por would like y un verbo en infinitivo o un sustantivo.
  • Negativo: empezamos con el sujeto seguido por would not like y un verbo en infinitivo o un sustantivo.
  • Interrogativo: empezamos con would seguido por el sujeto, like y un verbo en infinitivo o un sustantivo ( la oraciñon termina con un signo de interrogación).

Por ejemplo:
— Afirmativo: «I would like a cup of tea
— Negativo: «I wouldn’t like a cup of tea
— Interrogativo: «Would you like a cup of tea?»

NOTA: Liketiene un significado diferente al de would like: like se usa para expresar la idea de disfrutar algo.

For example:
— “would like to do some sport.” = Usamos would like para expresar el deso del sujeto de hacer deporte.
♦ “like sport.” = Usamos like para expresar que al sujeto le gusta hacer deporte.
