    I would prefer to swim & I would rather see

    Hello, do these sentences have the same meaning?
    I would prefer to swim rather than see a movie.
    I would rather see a movie than swim.

    No. In the first sentence, you expressed a preference for swimming. In the second, you favored seeing a movie.
    As far as sentence structure goes, the second sentence sounds better to me.
