Lesson Transcript

Hi, everybody! This is Rui from ChineseClass101.com.
Do you know how to say “thank you” in Chinese? In this lesson, you'll learn three different ways to say "thank you" and how to respond.
Let’s start with the easiest one.
xièxie.
[slowly] xièxie.
It means “thank you.”
If you want to really show your appreciation for something, you should use the following phrase.
Tài xièxie le.
[slowly] Tài xièxie le.
It means “thank you so much.”
The word 太 (tài) means "a lot." At the end, you can see the word 了 (le) which complete the sentence.
Together, Tài xièxie le literally means "thanks a lot" or "thank you so much."
What if you want to say that you appreciate something someone did more than should appreciate you? Here's the way to say it.
xièxiè nǐ.
[slowly] xièxiè nǐ.
You can find the word 你 (nǐ) at the end. It means "you." It's like saying "Thank YOU" in which "you" has been emphasized.
Now you know 3 different ways to say "thank you" in Chinese! But how do you respond if someone thanks you?
If someone says "thank you" in Chinese, simply say Bù yòng xiè. It means "You're welcome" or literally, "no need to thank."
Let's wrap up this lesson by recapping what we've learned. Listen to the expressions and repeat after me.
“Thank you."
xièxie.
*beep
xièxie.
The way to say “thank you so much.”
Tài xièxie le.
*beep
Tài xièxie le.
Literally “thank YOU."
xièxiè nǐ.
*beep
xièxiè nǐ.
And to respond, just say:
Bù yòng xiè.
*beep
Bù yòng xiè.
Well done! [pause]
In China, we don't usually say 谢谢 (xièxie) to our families or our close friends, because the expression creates a sense of distance. Instead of saying the phrase, we always do something else to show our gratitude.
You just learned three different ways to say “thank you” and how to respond in Chinese.
