Hi teachers,

The modal would in questions with the subject pronoun you and the verb like, asks for a preference or desire to someone in doing something in the present or future.

Is it the position "to someone" in its right place according to the sentence?

thanks in advance

No comma after 'like'.
'On the part of / by / of someone', not 'to someone'.

Is it like this?

I quite don't understand why I have to use "on the part of someone" instead of "to someone"

could you please explain me why?
Students: We have free audio pronunciation exercises.
You don't; I gave you three options. However, 'to' is plainly the wrong preposition; the desire or preference is held by the speaker, not the listener.
Thanks for the explanation and the options.

Then, can it be wrritten like this?

I did not give you 'on' as a choice.

Sorry Mister Micawber, I just thought the phrase could be shorter.

I was absolutely wrong.

Thanks once again.
What about this explanation, will it fit "someone" in there?

Yes, that's good. Now I see what you're looking for. I think I was confused before. Still no 'to', though.
