Hi Bob the Canadian here. You probably already know how to say, “Thank you.” and “You’re welcome.”

In this video though we’re going to look at several more ways to say, “Thank you.” in English.

The English phrase, “Thank you.” is obviously used to let someone know that you appreciate something that they’ve done for you.

It comes in several versions. The first version is a shorter version where you can use just the word:


So for instance you could say:

Thanks Dave for helping me change the tire on my car.

The next most common version is to say:

Thanks a lot.

Thanks a lot Dave for coming with me to pick up my friend from the airport.

There are two versions that are very similar. You could say:

Thank you so much.


Thank you very much.

So for instance you could say:

Thank you so much Dave for helping me carry the groceries in from the car.

There’s also a set of three phrases that are all very similar. And they are:

Thanks a ton.

Thanks a bunch.


Thanks a million.

And they can be used to say things like:

Thanks a bunch Dave for helping me go to the woods and chop firewood.

There is also a phrase that is a little more formal. You could say:

I am grateful.


I am so grateful.

For instance you could say:

I am so grateful for all the people that helped me train to run in the race last Saturday.

There’s also times where you’ll need to use, “Thank you.” or a form of thank you in a formal setting.

For instance if you were up front giving a speech where you’ve just won something you would start by saying:

I would like to thank…..

And the shorter version being:

I’d to thank…

So you could say:

I’d like to thank my Mom and Dad for raising me right.

Well that’s several ways to use, “Thank you.” in English and I want to just say:

Thank you!
