Hey, Mac and Rory, would you like to come with me to the sweet shop?

Sure, Eva, we would.

We use would you like when we invite somebody to something.

You can say do you want but would you like is much nicer.

Well, do you like bullseyes?

Do you like...? and would you like...? mean different things.

  • Do you like bullseyes? means "do you like bullseyes in general?" 

  • Would you like a bullseye? means "do you want to eat a bullseye now?"

Eh, no thanks, Rory. I wouldn’t like to eat any more. They’re horrible!

Yeah, I wouldn't like to eat any more either.

To make the negative, add not
