Would like

We often use "I would like" and the contraction "I'd like" when we order food in a restaurant.

"I'd like the chicken, please."

We use the same form with other subjects.

I would like - I'd like
You would like - You'd like
He would like - He'd like
She would like - She'd like
etc.

To form a question just change the word order.

Would you like ____?
Yes, I would.
No, I wouldn't.

Practice
Select the correct answer according to your tastes (if you like or don't like the food item). There are no correct or incorrect answers.

1.  Would you like chicken for lunch?

2.  Would you like orange juice for breakfast?

3.  Would you like fish for dinner?

4.  Would you like broccoli for a side order?

5.  Would you like ice cream for dessert?

6.  Would you like coffee?

7.  Would you like spaghetti?
