British English Survival Phrases, Lesson 1 - how to say "Thank you" in English.
Hello my name is Gina and I will be your language teacher and cultural guide throughout this introductory course. Wherever your destination may be, manners are a must! And in this respect, the United Kingdom is no different. So in our very first lesson, we’ll be teaching you a simple phrase that is bound to come in handy throughout your trip to the UK. I can’t stress this enough - a little bit of language can go such a long way!
SURVIVAL PHRASES
In English, we say ‘thank you’.
Once more, slowly: thank you.
You can emphasise ‘thank you’ by adding ‘very much’. It shows a little more gratitude. Now let’s hear it once again: ‘thank you very much’.
Slowly by syllable: ‘thank you very much’.
In English, there are other ways to express one’s gratitude, and a casual way of saying it is ‘thanks’. You will hear this often in place of ‘thank you’. Don’t forget the s. ‘Thanks’. Another casual way of saying this is by adding ‘a lot’.
‘Thanks a lot’.
Slowly by syllable: ‘Thanks a lot’.
There will be occasions where you will really want to show your appreciation and politeness. In this case, you would want to show your gratitude with the tone of your voice.
Okay, to close out this lesson we’d like you to practice what you’ve just learned. I’ll provide you with the phrase, and you’re responsible for shouting it out loud. You have a few seconds before I give you the answer. So good luck!
- Thank you
- Thank you very much
- Thanks
- Thanks a lot
