How to say Thank You in different ways in English

In this blog post, we’ll explore different ways to say thank you in both formal and informal settings. So let’s dive in and discover some different ways to express your gratitude!

Thank you + (for) 

Use the preposition (for) when you have a reason.


Thank you for helping me with my homework!


The preposition (for) is used to explain the reason. Like, why do I need to thank him? because he helped me with the homework.

More Examples using (for):

Thank you for taking care of my cat!

Thank you for being here when I needed you!

So, use (thank you for) with any reason you have in mind.

If you don’t want to use (Thank you), you may use other expressions such as:

I appreciate your kindness in helping me with my project.


it’s like saying (thank you) for being kind in helping me.

Other expressions:

I’m grateful for your support during the school play.
Your generosity really made a difference, and I’m truly thankful.

Besides, I thought of sharing with you other creative Thank-You Phrases. So, why not get a little creative with your expressions?

Here are a few examples:

You may use these kinds of expressions to express your deepest thanks to the person, especially, when things were kind of difficult to get solved.

Formal Expressions of Gratitude:

In more formal situations, it’s important to use appropriate language. Here are some phrases you can use:

I am sincerely grateful for your guidance and support.
Your assistance has been invaluable, and I wanted to express my deepest thanks.
I would like to extend my heartfelt appreciation for your time and effort.


So, these are just few examples for you to have a look at, and you can actually come up with your own expressions too 🙂

I just thought about sharing with you the most common and famous thank you expressions that you can use when speaking with people from different countries. If you don’t have international friends to speak with, I recommend joining or to communicate and practice speaking English really fast.
