Would you like to learn about these? I want to teach you.
“would like” = “want”
“I want some food” is OK, but it is nicer to say
“I would like some food”.
“Want” is a strong word.
“Would” is more polite, like asking and saying “please”. It is like saying “If I had some food, I will be happy”.
Would you like a drink?
Yes, I would like some tea please.
Would you like some cake too?
I would, but I am not hungry
If something is not 100% real, you can use “would”:
