• Would you like to come with us?
  • Oh, sure. I'd love to.

It is from our OXFORD student book. So my question is

Can students just answer 'I'd love to.' , 'Sure.', 'OK.' or 'That sounds great!'? without 'Yes or No'?

  • Since it's from an Oxford book, why do you think "yes" or "no" must be used as well?

Yes, you can answer it that way. The "yes" would be understood. You can also include the "yes" : "Yes, I'd love to."

"I'd love to..." and "That sounds great..." could also mean a refusal, if followed by "but" and a reason not to go.
