Dear Rebecca,
When someone asked me”Would you like…….”What may I answer?
Thank you.
Zoya

Zoya

    Great question.

    Your answer depends on the situation.

    If you are a child, speaking to someone older, your answer could be:

    Yes, please.
    No, thank you.
    No, thanks.

    If you are an adult, speaking to another adult, you could say:

    Question: Would you like some coffee?

    Yes, thank you. (formal situation)
    Yeah, thanks. (less formal)
    Sure, thanks. ( informal)

    or

    No, thank you.
    No, thanks.
    No. Thanks, anyway.

    As you can see, in English, we don’t usually say just “yes” or “no”. We usually follow it up with another word or two, to sound more polite.

“i’d like some coffee, please. ” may i know the” i’d ” actually is stand for what ? hm… sorry for this simple question… because i.. would like to learn more about english.

Profile photo of LIEW VUI LIEW VUI

    “I’d” stands for “I would”.

    Hope this helps. Feel free to ask anything you like, that’s the best way to learn.

    Profile photo of Rebecca Rebecca

Hello Rebecca. I have just seen this video and must say it is great. I would like to ask you where to use “would want”. I have heard that I cannot use it in “normal” sentences but only in “specific condition” (e.g. I would want a beer – it is not possible to use it). I think “would like” and “would want” are not the same. Can you help me, please? I’m waiting for the answer.

Profile photo of Jakub1 Jakub1

    You are right.

    “Would want” and “would like” are not used in the same way.

    As you said, “would want’ is used when a specific condition exists. For example,

    “If I were sitting at the side of the pool on a hot day like this, I would want a beer.”

    In the example above, you are not actually sitting by the pool at all, so it is a hypothetical condition.

    Similarly,

    “If I decided to rent out this apartment, I would want the tenants to give me two months rent as a deposit.”

    Also above, the situation is hypothetical.

    Hope this helps you. Good luck with your English!

    Profile photo of Rebecca Rebecca

      I’m glad that you’ve answered. Thank you very much.

      There’s another problem being in my head. I have got to decide if this sentence “I WAS KNOWING IT” is very polite English or it’s not polite English at all (or more precisely wrong English). I’m not kidding. I always thought that “I WAS KNOWING IT” is wrong and that “I KNEW IT” is correct. Thought it can’t be a standart English. But recently I’ve seen it written in one old book (published in 1899) and started thinking if I am wrong.

      Could you help me this time, Rebecca, please?

      As always I’m waiting for the answer.

      Don’t know if my question is meant to be here, hope it doesn’t mind.

      Profile photo of Jakub1 Jakub1

        Since “to know” is a stative verb, you cannot use it in the continuous form. It would be wrong to say “I was knowing it.” It is correct to say ” I knew it.”

        English has changed over the years so it’s better to use newer books. Hope this helps you.

        Profile photo of Rebecca Rebecca

      Hi Rebecca..Thanks for you excellent video..Regarding to your comment above, could we just use “I want a beer” without “would”?

karem

Rebecca, I love your teaching! Most of the times, I know how to say what I want to and, I know understand english texts but, my booring problem is, the listening! And I know I’ll just get through that, practising it. So I started to watching EngVid videos, and after more or less three days doing that, my listening incredibly got better. And it’s getting better each day! I haven’t ever an english course, and I got no time to do that. I think so: “If I got all I know about english until today, with no especial class, I guess I can learn all the rest by the same way”. I’m 18 years old, and I’m brazilian. I love english! I just wanna say: “Thank you a lot!” You’ve been helping me with yours lessons!” You’re one of the best teachers of here! Kiss’

Hi Rebecca,
Thanks for teaching us, you are the best:)I was in the USA a few months ago and I was following your all videos from there.. Now, I am in Turkey and I’d like to watch your all videos that you put in here but I can’t:( I have problem to watch the videos on engvid.com. Engvid.com doesn’t allow me to watch them cause I am in Turkey now or is there a different reason? Could you pls help me?
Thanks,

Mujde

    Hi Mujde. The lessons on engVid are hosted on YouTube. YouTube is currently blocked by the Turkish government, so you will need to find a way around that. Try looking for a “proxy server” that will let you connect to YouTube from Turkey,and engVid will work for you again also.

Thank you for a very useful lesson!

Does it sound rude if I use “I would like to” to order something?
For example, at McDonald’s, the server asks me “How can I help you?”
and I say ” I would like to have a 5-piece chicken select.”

Does that sound rude?

Is it better to say “Can I have a 5-piece chicken select?”

I know it’s definitely rude to say ” I want a 5-piece chicken select”, but how about ‘ I would like to have”?
I need your native speaker intuition.
Many thanks!

Dear Rebecca,

What wonderful intent! This video clip clearly has been of great service to many people interested in learning English. Having researched the subject of “want…” versus “would like…” extensively online, I was very pleased to have found that you had taken the time to produce it.

Indeed, it is remarkable that there exists such scant discussion online regarding the discourteous nature of saying “I want…” and “Do you want?” versus the polite way of speaking, as you have so kindly taken the time to point out, of “I would like… ” and “Would you like…”

As a native English speaker, I am compelled, nonetheless, in the interest of correctness to make the following comment:

1. At Minute 1:32 in the clip, “I WANNA go home.” This is not just “said fast,” as you offered; it is bastardized. It is a colloquialism at best. It is badly pronounced English – pure and simple. While several online dictionaries provide definitions of the term, most likely in order to provide insight into how English has evolved, you will see that possibly the most highly respected English dictionary in North America is loath to show that that “wanna” is a real word (see link below):
http://www.merriam-webster.com/dictionary/wanna

The term “Wanna” results from sloppy pronunciation. So, given your admirable intent with respect to teaching good English to students, wouldn’t you rather avoid exposing foreigners to the term “wanna” instead of validating its unworthy existence?

2. In addition, please allow me to add a small modicum of clarity to your statement “it is not wrong” regarding the term “Do you want…” While it is not GRAMMATICALLY wrong, in terms of etiquette, it is RUDE, DISCOURTEOUS, and IMPOLITE. Wouldn’t it make sense to discourage foreigners from using phrases such as “do you want…” altogether, rather than approve them for use in certain “casual” contexts?

English language and English culture have traditionally been regarded as the last bastions of good etiquette and linguistic precision. By validating the use of colloquialisms (many of which originated as Americanisms) it seems one might ultimately and unwittingly cast a negative pall upon users of such terms.

    Easy on the prescriptivism, buddy. This is how people actually talk, and a student of English needs to understand what people are saying, whether it’s “good English” or not.

    Here at Engvid we try to avoid saying certain language is objectively proper or improper. Instead we focus on whether it’s proper in that setting. Slang from pop songs isn’t appropriate for a TOEFL essay or a job interview. Likewise, the formal English you’d use in a business letter isn’t appropriate when making small talk at a party. And the stilted, verbose language you use in your comment, I’m sorry to say, isn’t ideal anywhere.

Hello Ms Rebecca , thank you for this useful lesson , but plz i’m still confused, you said that we use would like as a polite way to offer sth or invite someone , what about request , i guess we use would like even for requests , for instance , i would like some coffee it’s a request it isn’t neither an offer nor an invitation plz can you explain me this point ,and the second thing do we have to use would like in offer and invitation between friends coz in general we use less formal language between friends, i think if we use would like between friends it will a bit strange , what do you think teacher?
, i’m waiting for your respond and thanks again for this useful video , best regards

Dear Mrs. Rebecca, I have a bit of dought about question number 8. Here I do not request or offer anything to another individual. In such situations, do I really need to be polite? Please clarify.
I appreciate your valuable lessons. I am a regular student of your lessons as well.
