    Phrases for thanking someone in English


    This is a list of phrases for showing appreciation or gratitude to someone in English.

    Light "thank you" phrases

    If someone does something small for you, you can say:


    Thank you.

    It's common to follow "Thanks" with a person's name or a word to address them:

    Thanks darling.

    Thanks Ben!

    Appreciate it!

    It's not often used in American English, but English speakers in Britain and Australia often say:


    More serious English "Thank you's"

    When someone really goes out of their way to help you, you can use one of these expressions to show a deeper level of gratitude:

    We really appreciate all of your hard work and effort.

    Thank you so much.

    This is less formal but expresses a lot of emotion:

    Thank you so, so much for coming.

    You might think that this phrase would express deep thanks, but it's not exactly used that way:

    Thank you very much.

    Actually, people often use this for simple polite interactions like when a waiter brings your food.

    You can also use it when you're angry with someone:

    I can do it just fine by myself, thank you very much.

    Formal expressions of thanks

    Here's a formal phrase to use in situations like when you're writing a card to someone:

    I'm so thankful for having you in my life.

    The emotion that this phrase expresses is really strong.

    Another phrase which is also formal but not as emotional is this one:

    I want to thank you for all the support you've given me during my time here.

    This phrase is good to use in various situations at work.

    Responding to "thank-you's"

    When someone thanks you, it's polite to respond in some way. Depending on how serious the "thank you" is, you can respond with one of the phrases below:


    No sweat.

    No problem.

    You're welcome.

    Don't worry about it.

    Don't mention it.

    You're quite welcome.

    No, not at all.

    It's my pleasure.

    It's the least I could do.

    This list is arranged roughly in order of seriousness.
