English Lesson 3: Please & Thank You

Hi everybody, this is Misterduncan in England. How are you today? Are you Okay? I hope so! Are you happy? I hope so! In this lesson we will look at two actions which many of us do. Altough may be not as often as we should. Today, we will talk about saying “please” and “thank you”

Saying “Please”

we usually say “please” when asking for something or as a polite (nice) way of saying yes to an offer.

“Please can I watch some TV?” “Can I please go out to play?” “May I please leave the room?” “ Could I please have some icecream?” “Would you like some ice cream? Oh, yes please” “Do you want something to eat? Yes, I would please” “Can I offer you a cup of Coffee? Oh please, that would be great”

The word “please” can be used to show satisfaction and pleasure. “I am pleased with my new house” “This job pleases me” “Your music gives me pleasere” “I am very pleased to meet you”

From those few examples you can see that “please” and “pleasure” are closely releted in origin but are sometimes used in completely diffrent ways. If something makes you pleased, you can say that you feel Uplifted, Perked, Chuffed, Gladdened, Overjoyed, Over the moon.

Saying “Thank You”

The action of saying “Thank you” is seen as the most polite way of showing how greatful you ar efor receiving something or as a way of acknowledging an act of kindness. We say “thank you” to show our appreciation. By saying “Thank you”, you show your gratitute. You Express your appreciation. You acknowledge the kindness. You return the generosity, verbally. You offer your sincerest thanks. You are grateful.

There are many ways to say “thank you”. “Thank you”, “Thank you very much”, “Thanks a lot”, “Thank you so much”, “Thanks a bundle”, “You are too kind”, “Thanks ever such a lot”, “Cheers”, “Ta very much”,

Sometimes we may Express suprise and joy, as well as showing our thanks. “Wow! How kind, thank you”, “That’s good of you, Cheers”, “I don’t know what to say, thanks a lot”. “I am overwhelmed, thank you so much”, “What can I say? You are the best” “Thank you very much, This present is so nice!”, “Oh, you shouldn’ have!”

Oh dear, I appear to be in the wrong lesson mmm, how embarrassing. I suppose I had better go.

Saying “thank you” is the best way to show your gratitude to another person. It is a polite thing to do. To acknowledge someone’s kindness is a nice thing to do and don’t forget kindness creates more kindness.  I hope.

Well, that is all from me for today. May I offer you my sincerest thanks for watching me, teaching you. This is Misterduncan in England saying. Ta-ta for now.
