How to Say Thank You
Don’t be shy! Say “thank you” to someone every day.
Here are some more ways to say “thank you” in English:
Thank you so much.
Thanks a bunch.
You’re too kind.
You’re the best.
You’re my saviour.
You’re an angel.
What would I do without you?
I owe you one.
I don’t know what to say. (Use if “thank you” seems too small.)
Thank you is not enough.
I really appreciate this/what you’ve done.
I can’t thank you enough.
Sometimes you need to say “no” in a polite way:
No thank you.
Thank you, but I’m not interested.
Not today, thank you.
Note: You may also hear people say, “Thanks, but no thanks.” This is a sarcastic or funny way to say “no thank you”.
Survival challenge: The term “gratitude” means thankful. A good way to practise English daily is to make a Gratitude List at the beginning or end of each day. What are you thankful for today?[youtube]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=R9z2ELaBVJY[/youtube]
