    want / would like

    Dear teachers,

    Would you tell me whether there is a difference between the interpretations of the following two sentences?

    Do you want me to draw the curtains?
    Would you like me to draw the curtains?

    Thanks for your efforts.

    Regards,

    V

    Re: want / would like

    To my understanding, would like is a polite or respectful way of saying want.
