    Creo que si se han dicho cosas incorrectas, por lo menos en términos gramaticales.

    El camino del aprendizaje es largo. De hecho no termina nunca. Lo más importante es tener la actitud de querer aprender.

    Hi Solfinker.

    The best rendering, in my opinion is:

    Do you want me to get you a cup of coffe or would you rather like me to get you a glass of milk?

    Grammar: There must be a correspondence between the two verbal forms marked in red, between the two subjects ("you") and between the two direct objects ("me"). Cup of coffee and glass of milk are both direct objects of the verb to get. The compound "rather like" is equivalent to "prefer".

    I hope this can help you.
    Bye.

    The correct option would be to use get since got is used for the past.

    The simplest option is:

    Would you prefer a cup of coffee or a glass of milk?

    How would this sound.... Do you want me to get you a cup of coffee, or would you like a glass of milk?

    I think this is a good option as the tenses of the verb are the same.

    Also, another simple alternative could be: Would you like me to get you a cup of coffee or a glass of milk?

    Wow! Talk about overkill!! A real person would just ask: "Do you want coffee...or milk?" or "Would you rather have coffee or milk?" No need to get into whether it's a cup or glass. Everybody knows to serve coffee in a cup and milk in a glass.
