Si vous voudriez
Si vous voulez
In English, "I would like" is softer and more polite than "I want," and French has a similar distinction: je voudrais
and je veux
. So English speakers wanting to say "if you like" often come up with "si vous voudriez."
cannot be followed by the conditional - you can only say si vous voulez
. Likewise for "si je voudrais"
> si je veux
and "si tu voudrais"
> si tu veux
