    not a teacher
    I agree with would, but to my understanding "prefer" requires to be followed by an ing-form. I think "would rather" is the correct answer.

    "would" is correct, "prefer" isn't.

    Yes. It's often shortend to '"I'd rather", and in informal conversation you can sometimes hardly hear the 'd', but it's there.

    ps. "... go Cinema" should be "... go to the cinema".

    Thank you to everyone who helped me to solve these questions.

    I would like to have a recommendation from you teachers?

    I have been studying English for more than three years 'Self learning, you tube, books, videos, movie' but still right now I make mistakes grammatically, writing, also I have vocabulary but not much like I would.
    so please advice me and guide me to improve my English based on your experiences.

    Best Regards

    That's difficult when we don't know you personally. We all learn in different ways; what works for one person is a disaster for another. For questions about grammar, I have found that many learners (and teachers) I have met have found this book, 'Practical English Usage' by Michael Swan, invaluable.
