Hello
Series 3 Episode 10 Task 8 - last question

I shall write one word into the gap to complete the small talk:

A: Can I get you another drink?
B: Yes, please.
A: ____ you prefer wine or fruit juice?

I've inserted 'Do' but the solution is 'Would'.
Why can't I insert 'Do'?
Thank you for your time.
Bye

Hello User_User,

While both 'do' and 'would' are grammatically possible here, 'would' is the better answer. That is because 'do' asks about a general preference while 'would' asks about a particular example. So I could say that I prefer wine to orange juice generally, but right now I would like some orange juice because I will be driving my car later.

Hello,
I've been working for about ten years as a civil servant and I'm very glad to do something for public. But I occasionally hate my job owing to my colleagues with whom I have to work. Because some of them don't work effectively and some even do not respect their working hours. So I have to deal with the work which they don't do or do wrong.

Hi,
I am currently working for a software company to support for a client from their own place as a result i work in a different place from where i was working before. First I love this place very much because i have got a chance of communicating with clients so as i could improve my language skills and it's been good learning for me to meet different people, In my current job i like being given freedom at my work to finish with particular time, i like daytime working as i was already very fed up with working at night shifts for a foreign client, and i like learning and exploring things more about finance and software and i think i am lucky enough to have this job, and the things i hate about my current job is i don't like doing same kind of work everyday and sometimes get bored. I wish my employer would give me a different work over a period.
Thanks
