Let’s say I want to ask “what would you like for dinner”. I could say 「晩ご飯は何を食べたいですか」 to mean “what do you want to eat for dinner”. Is this a good way to say “what would you like for dinner”? Is there a better way to ask this question, or is “would like to” and “want to” the same thing in Japanese?
What about for something slightly more complicated, like “what would you like me to do”? Here is the example that’s been floating around in my head:
Other Person (in English): Say something in Japanese.
Me (in Japanese): What would you like me to say?
How do I say that in Japanese? I don’t think you’re supposed to use ～たい for statements/questions that state or assume other people’s wants, but I’m not sure if this is the same situation. What is the appropriate way to say this?
