English Grammar – Preferences “ Hi, Sam. I'm so glad you came. Would you like something to drink? How about some orange juice? Personally, I prefer to drink orange juice only at breakfast, so maybe I'd rather have something else. Would you prefer cranberry juice or white grape juice? Which would you rather have? Or maybe you don't want either. Would you rather have a hot drink? Would you prefer tea or coffee? My husband and I prefer drinking tea to coffee, so we usually have tea in the house. Right now we have some Chinese tea and some black tea that he got back from Russia. Which would you prefer ? Or would you rather have some soda?” Consider these examples:

“ Hi, Sam. I'm so glad you came.

Personally, I prefer to drink orange juice only at breakfast, so maybe I'd rather have something else.

Would you prefer cranberry juice or white grape juice? Which would you rather have?

Or maybe you don't want either. Would you rather have a hot drink? Would you prefer tea or coffee? My husband and I prefer drinking tea to coffee, so we usually have tea in the house. Right now we have some Chinese tea and some black tea that he got back from Russia. Which would you prefer ? Or would you rather have some soda?”

Consider these examples:

(would) prefer – would rather difference in form

Check your understanding:

Answers using preposition to express preferences “ Would you prefer taking a nap or going for a walk?” “ I'd prefer going for a walk to taking a nap.” “ I would (I'd) prefer a walk to a nap”. “ Would you rather watch a talk show or a movie?” “ I would (I'd) rather watch a movie than a talk show.” “ I'd rather see a movie than watch a talk show.”

“ Would you prefer taking a nap or going for a walk?”

“ I'd prefer going for a walk to taking a nap.”

“ I would (I'd) prefer a walk to a nap”.

“ Would you rather watch a talk show or a movie?”

“ I would (I'd) rather watch a movie than a talk show.”

“ I'd rather see a movie than watch a talk show.”

Note: The negative form of “would rather”is 'I'd rather not' (we'd rather not, you'd rather not, they'd rather not etc) - 'Hey, you wanna go to the movies tonight?' - 'Oh, thanks. I'd rather not.' Politely say 'no'.
