New Ways to Say Thank You & You’re Welcome in English

May 3, 2017 | Advanced Vocabulary, English Conversation

Do you get tired using the same basic expressions in English, like please, thank you, and you’re welcome? I do too.

When I first started to learn French – my second language – I started with a grammar book. And, like you, those were the first expressions I learned.

And of course, those are great. You must learn those words and expressions. But… 

When you start talking to native speakers, you might notice something: they don’t use the same words and expressions you learned in your grammar books! 

You might understand perfect, formal English from grammar books, but not the everyday language people use.

Let’s change that with some new ways to say thank you and you’re welcome in English.

Learn how native speakers really say thank you and you’re welcome.

Lesson by Annemarie

Now that you’ve watched the video and learned some new ways to say thank you and you’re welcome in English, I’ve got some questions for you.

  1. Try using one of these new expressions with your English-speaking colleagues and friends. Try it in an email, a telephone conversation, or face-to-face. Get comfortable with it. And then try another new expression so you can build your vocabulary naturally.
  2. And I’d LOVE to know: what’s your favorite way to say thank you? It might be an expression you learned in today’s lesson. Or maybe it’s an expression you’ve learned somewhere else.

Share with me in the comments below. Have a fantastic Wednesday and see you next week!
