Hi guys!

Tom here from BBC Learning English and I would rather be in bed today than be in the office.

We use ‘would rather’ plus a verb to say what we would, ideally, prefer to do.

We can also use ‘than’ to introduce a contrasting idea.

For example, I would rather drink tea than drink coffee.

And, I would rather watch TV than do my homework.

Function/ఫంక్షన్-పనిచేయు స్థితి

ఒక ప్రత్యేకమైన సందర్భంలో మనకు ఏది ఇష్టమో చెప్పడానికి ‘would rather’ వాడతాము. ‘Would rather’ వాడుతున్నప్పుడు, తరచుగా, ఒకటి కంటే ఎక్కువ విరుద్ధమైన ఆలోచనలను పరిచయం చేస్తాము. విరుద్ధమైన భావాలు చెప్పడానికి ‘than’ (or ‘rather than’) అని వాడతాము. 

I would rather drink juice than drink water.
I would rather listen to music than watch TV.

Structure /నిర్మాణం

Positive form: సానుకూల రూపం

would rather + verb
‘Would’ is often contracted to I’d, you’d, he’d , she’d, we’d and they’d.

I would rather stay in bed than go for a run in the morning
He’d rather sit in front of the TV than go for a run!

Negative form: ప్రతికూల రూపం

The negative form of ‘would rather’ is ‘rather not’. This is not used as much as the positive form. We don’t introduce contrasting ideas when using negative forms.

I’d rather not visit your family this weekend.

We can also use ‘would rather not’ as a short answer.

A: Would you like to come swimming?
B: No thanks, I’d rather not.

Question form: ప్రశ్నాత్మక రూపం

We change the word order to make a question. We use would you rather to offer a choice.

Would you rather go the café or the bar?
Would you rather live in America or live in Asia?

Game: 'would rather'
