I don ´t know if I can help much after all the answers you got from native speakers but when I was learning English I was taught that prefer was followed by to+infinitive and that is what I have been teaching to my students, although both options sound correct to my ear.
If I had to choose I would choose "prefer to".

We can help students practice English both in speaking, writing through this activity. I would like to suggest that  our students can use through Skype or other internet tools
Looking forward to your response.

Help me to make a surprise to my dedicated student   
Help me to make a surprise to my dedicated student
My name is Danilo and I asked my students from 8th grade to write about a trip, they could imagine anywhere in the world. But I had a huge suprise with my student Monalisa. She wrote a wonderful text, with a high level of quality.
So, I would like to share her text, and If possible I would like you coment it,  giving to my student  positive comments and encouraging her to write more. I will print the comments and I will show her. She is going to be very happy.
I certified and she didn ´t copy or paste the text from internet. It ´s her own creation.
Please help me to encourage my student; she deserves that. She loves reading and writing.
In thos link you can see the text: 
PS: Please, Do not forget of writing the country you are from.

Please, post links to any worksheets that can help me...

What about the ´picture based discussion ´ series on here? Get your students to debate the pros and cons. Here ´s an example. Or else, newspaper reports and ask the students to summarise the article.

Can anyone correct this sentence?   
Do you mind correcting these sentences? (This is from an essay on advantages of having friends who are similar to you or different from you)
1. ´ve had friends of the same nature and people who are different from me.
2Then life becomes easy and comfortable which helps t o form happy and harmonious relationships between friends or spouses.
How about AMONG FRIENDS OR SPOUSES ? (If you mean relationships between 2 people, is  it still OK to use the word "between"?
3 . Moreover, friends,who are different from you, can help you broaden your mind as well as show you a different perspective of the world. For example, you can get to know a foreign culture with your friend ´s help which  is very difficult without studying it for a long time.
 HOW ABOUT:This:which is difficult to do only by yourself. 
 Thank you for your help.

Do you mind helping me to understand this short text, please ?   
Hi all,
May some Spanish or Spanish-speaking friend help me in translating it in English ? There are too many words I do not know or understand.
Many many thanks for your precious help.
“¡Si nuestra amistad depende de cosas como el espacio y el tiempo, entonces, cuando por fin superemos el espacio y el tiempo, habremos destruido nuestra propia hermandad! Pero supera el espacio, y nos quedará sólo un Aquí. Supera el tiempo, y nos quedará sólo un Ahora. Y entre el Aquí y el Ahora, ¿no crees que podremos volver a vernos un par de veces?”

Hi there!
I ´m from Argentina and my mother tongue is Spanish.
 Georgina translated the text very well and Bruce is right with his suggestions 
Maryse, the accurate translation of your short text would be like this: 
 " If our friendship depends upon things like space and time, then, when we finally get over space and time, we will have
destroyed our own brotherhood! But get over space and only a Here will remain for us. Get over time and only a Now will remain
for us. And between the Here and Now, don ´t you believe that we can see each other again a couple of times?
"Surpass" in English is not the same as "superar" in Spanish although they seem to have the same meaning.
Superar= get over
I hope to help you!
Warm Regards!
