    There's a big hint (of the correction you would need to make) in Raymott's question.

    Re: right or wrong

    Have you learnt this construction yet?

    ________ you like to come with me?
    Yes, I ________ like to come with you.


    It's another way of saying "I want", but instead we say "I _____ like".
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
