Hi guys! Tom here from BBC Learning English and… I would rather be in bed today than be in the office.

We use 『would rather』 plus a verb to say what we would, ideally, prefer to do.

We can also use 『than』 to introduce a contrasting idea.

So, for example, I would rather drink tea than drink coffee.

And, I would rather watch TV than do my homework.
