John: Would you care to dance?

Marcia: I’d love to.

This is a polite way to ask if someone wants to do something. It’s very similar to last week’s phrase (“Would you care for some tea?”) but it end with a verb instead of a noun. An action is being offered, not an object. “I’m going to have some coffee. Would you care to join me?”

ジョン:一緒に踊りませんか?

マーシャ:よろこんで。

何かをしたいのかを礼儀正しく尋ねる方法です。先週のフレーズ(お茶はいかがですか?)に良く似ていて、最後に名詞ではなく動詞が来ます。何かをあげるのではなく、○○しないかと誘われています。「私はコーヒーを飲みに行くけど一緒にどうですか?」
