    I'd say I prefer to read in the couch rather than play beach volleyball at the sea side.

    你漏了rather,out there會和前面的couth發生連結。語意不合邏輯。

    prefer something or somebody

    prefer something or somebody to something or somebody

    prefer to do something

    prefer doing something

    prefer something (to be) something

    would prefer (that)

    would prefer it if

    something is to be preferred to something

    以上在字典裡都有例句。查字典最可靠,在這裡問,有時會上當的。

    couch誤打成couth

    Good answer. 冰山冷燕

    By the way, Luis,

    prefer to ... rather than to ....

    Or

    prefer to .... than to ....

    Both are accurate.

    I prefer to read in the couch (rather) than to play beach volleyball out there.

    請問: I'd say是什麼? (不知道原意是要說什麼)

    I'd say= I had said 我早就說過了--> 不高興之意

    I'd say=I would say我願意說--> 怪怪的
