the winner of best teacher ever

Ali Williams well best teacher ever

thank you very much I so many people to

thank my parents I really appreciate

everything you’ve done for me who else I

don’t have more time I’m being told I

have to hurry up I’m okay I’m fine today

we’re doing we’re doing vocabulary on

in this lesson we’re only doing useful

vocabulary words we actually say there

are old-fashioned ways of thanking

someone for example much obliged or

thank you kindly but these days you

won’t hear those so I won’t teach those

ok from formal to informal ways of

thanking someone let’s start with formal

or someone does something really big for

you really special you’ll want to say

these things

thanks ever so much pronunciation thanks

ever so much thanks ever so much

I’ll use this expression for people who

I don’t really know or if someone does

something for me which is so nice so

special or helps me with a big problem

thanks ever so much for your help for

example I can’t thank you enough

pronounciation link you and enough with

a were sound what will intrude sounding

like I can’t thank you enough you enough

you enough of course it sounds more

natural to make that tea in can’t a

glottal tea so all together it sounds

like I can’t thank you enough I can’t

number three I appreciate it or modify

it with I really appreciate it

this sounds very formal and it’s great

to use again with someone who you don’t

know or if someone does something very

special for you and you want to give

them a big thank you my natural

pronunciation is is London standard

London and I would glottal eyes that

final T so it sounds like this I really

appreciate it

Thanks I didn’t say appreciate it I glut

alized the final T appreciates it

so for that natural sounding London

accent this is an option

Wow I’m really grateful sometimes I hear

this when someone receives a present I

personally don’t like to say this

because being grateful is not something

you say about yourself it’s something

you show through your actions personally

I don’t like it again to sound natural

that T in grateful should be glut alized

it sounds quite strange if you say I’m

really grateful no and finally to give

that big thanks to someone to say wow

this was very special you can say thanks

that means a lot to me or this means a

lot to me so those are for formal

situations or very big thank-yous what

about other situations let’s have a look

if someone gives you a present a common

response to this could be wow thanks

I mean you shouldn’t have this must be

very expensive this expression is quite

specific to when you receive a present

and you want to say you’ve spent too

much money or you did something and this

is very nice you did too much then you

the standard way of ending an email with

a thank-you is many thanks your name but

this is quite impersonal so for your

friends for your family

no that sounds strange but for a company

or to someone who you don’t really know

then it’s good okay how about the quick

informal ones those little interactions

in your day where you want to give a

quick thanks Cheers

yes for drinks when we clean we say


but that’s not the only use of Cheers

in fact it’s the most common way to say

thank you in England pronunciation it’s

flat one syllable

and finally thank you or thanks thanks

is more common and there’s nothing wrong

with just saying these they’re still

fine everyone uses them all the time but

you can modify them get a bit creative

for example when I leave a shop all the

time I will say thanks a lot

and this is great this is fine for a

quick fast interaction where you need to

say thank you in a polite way but quick

let’s modify it a bit more you want to

give an extra big thank you change a lot

for so much thanks so much thanks so

much again it’s quick but it’s still a

big thank you and commonly you will hear

our brilliant Thanks all right brilliant

Thanks but of course we don’t pronounce

it like that

all right brilliant Thanks

now you and me we are British let’s

modify it a little more with a

compliment very commonly you will hear

oh you bought me an Xbox are you legend

thank you you legend very common it’s

usually shortened to you ledge cheers

formal way you have these options of

course in school you’re always taught

you’re quite welcome another very formal

one is don’t mention it it’s a very

formal way to say you’re welcome other

options are my pleasure or not at all

notice the catenation in not at all it

sounds more like nah-ha tall not at all

not at all thanks not at all and the

informal ways of responding to informal

thank-yous of course you have no problem

my personal favorite is no worries no

worries Australians they are so so cool

I have heard Australians say no was

which is a modification of no worries I

love this I would say this if I had an

Australian accent because Australians
