Lesson Transcript

¡Hola a todos! Soy Lucia. Hi everybody! I’m Lucia.
Welcome to SpanishPod101.com’s Español en tres minutos. The fastest, easiest, and most fun way to learn Spanish.
In the last lesson, we learned how to introduce ourselves in Spanish. In this lesson, we’re going to learn how to use good manners as we thank people.
¿Estan listos?; Are you ready? Empecemos!, Let’s start!
There are several ways to thank someone, let’s start with the easiest. It is just one word:
[slowly] Gracias.
Gracias means “thank you”.
To say “thank you very much”, you just need to add muchas before it. Muchas means “very” or “a lot”.
Muchas gracias.
[slowly] Muchas gracias.
For a simple “thanks”, Gracias will be enough. If you want to say more than just “thanks”, Muchas gracias is good to use.
Now, how do you respond to “thank you” in Spanish? It’s easy!
The most common way to say “you’re welcome” is: De nada.
[slowly] De nada.
Nada means “nothing”. So de nada literally means “it’s nothing”, so we use it to mean “you’re welcome”.
So when someone says Gracias to you, you can simply reply with:
De nada.
Now it’s time for Lucia’s Insights.
If you’re not sure about whether to use Gracias or Muchas gracias, keeping it simple is always your safest bet. You don’t have to worry about formal or informal situations. Gracias can be used with just about anyone, anywhere and at anytime!
Do you know how to say goodbye to your friends in Spanish? In our next lesson you’ll learn this and other greetings!
¡Hasta la próxima! See you soon!
