    Need advise on using " I would like..." thanks, te

    Is it correct to write:

    I would like tomato soup than onion soup.

    I would rather have tomato soup than onion soup. ( which is definitely a correct one)

    Please advise, teachers! Thanks again for helping. ^o^

    No. Instead, say:
    • I prefer tomato soup to onion soup.

    Or:
    • I would like tomato soup instead of onion soup.


    Is it Help Wanted?

    The phrase "would like" expresses a wish or desire. If there is a comparison involved, one needs "more than", "less than", "raher than", "instead of", "as opposed to", etc.
