    Question close call

    Can someone give me a clear, definitive answer?
    What is the difference between "I prefer" and "I,d rather".
    How would this be taught to native Spanish teenagers?
    In colloquial English the two are interchangeable, aren't they?

    Yes, they are.
    Note that prefer is a verb and would rather is a kind of an idiom.
    I prefer something to somethinf else but:
    I'd rather have something than something else.
