    My grammar teacher did that for the same reason

    Are you going to see him again?

    B- We normally use "planning to" when we have thought carefuly about the plan and decided how to do it.

    What are you planning to say at the meeting?
    I'm planning to leave this company next year.

    Re: I have a grreat lesson

    Ronbee and Veron1
    Good my students. blouen is absent. I'll take from his marks.

    2- would like to, would rather


    I/You/He/She/We/They

    Positive form:

    I/You/He/She/We/They+ would like to stay at home.
    I/You/He/She/We/They+ would rather stay at home.

    Question form:

    Would I/You/He/She/We/They like to stay at home.
    Would I/You/He/She/We/They rather stay at home.

    Negative form:

    I/You/He/She/We/They+ would not like to stay at home.
    I/You/He/She/We/They+ would rather not stay at home.

    A- We use ''would like to'' to say what we want to do.
    I'd like to travel round the world one day.

    It's less direct than ''want to'' and we often use it to be polite, especially in questions.
    Would you like to see the menu?


    B- We use ''would rather'' to say we prefer one thing to another thing. After this form, we always use the infinitive without to.

    I'd rather go on a walking holiday.Beach holidays are boring.
    Would you rather sit inside or on the terrace.

    Remember

    We don't usually use would rather in negative sentence:

    I would rather go on a walking holiday.(right)
    I would not rather go on a beach holiday.(wrong)

    Like is a verb, but rather is not. so you can't say They rather stay at home. Perhaps you meant "Would they like to stay at home?" and "Would they rather stay at home?"

    How about:
    I would rather not go on a beach holiday.
    I would rather not = that is not my preference
