I’d like to help you use ‘would like’.

I'd like a doughnut, please.

It should be simple to use ‘would like’ but this is taught and checked so badly that many students can’t use it accurately. In this post I’ll use the contracted form ”d like’ because this causes most of the errors I encounter.

Things

Use the pattern:

Subject + ‘d like + article or quantifier + object.

I'd like a doughnut, please.

I'd like some tea, please.

Actions

Use the pattern:

Subject + ‘d like + to + infinitive verb + (object phrase).

I know that the ‘to’ is part of the infinitive verb, but the main point here is that you use a ‘plain’ verb after the ‘to’.

I'd like to go to Paris.

I hope this helps you. If so, please share it on Facebook, Twitter or other social media, please.
