I have 2 comments :
- I (European man) am not really satisfied with these first ever translations, I don't think I am going to go over with your way of teaching after these 7 days try.
Unless I would be surprised in the meantime, by your way of teaching...
Why that ? The translation that you give is your interpretation and not any real translation !
This way of doing doesn't help the beginner students that we are !
Example : 您真是太好了。
Literal translation is : You are indeed too good !
Your interpretation : That's very kind of you !

Hello Ross A Christensen, Neil,
Thank you for your comments and sharing your stories with us. 😄
@Ross A Christensen, yes this phrase can be useful. It should be bāngzhù (help).
@Neil, that is true, Chinese don't say 'thank you' that much, because it creates distance. People do sometimes use other subtle ways to express gratitude or show politeness.
As always, let us know if you have any questions.
One very startling thing I (USA citizen) learned recently was that you are very good friends with a Chinese person, they may feel slightly offended if you thank them for something. In their mind you are like family, and since they would not expect to thank or be thanked by a member of their own family, they would not expect that with you.
