Lesson Transcript

Hi, everybody! This is Katya from RussianPod101.com.
Do you know how to say “thank you” in Russian? In this lesson, you'll learn three different ways to say "thank you" and how to respond.
Let’s start with the easiest one.
Спасибо.
[slowly] Спасибо.
It means “thank you.”
If you want to show you really appreciate something, just add Большое.
Большое спасибо.
[slowly] Большое спасибо.
It means “thank you so much.”
The word Большое means "big," so Большое спасибо literally means "Big thanks."
To sound like a pro, you can also add why you're thankful. For example, Большое спасибо за помощь.
“Thank you very much for your help.”
What if you want to show your appreciation for something in a more formal way? Here's how you can say it.
Спасибо, с удовольствием.
[slowly] Спасибо, с удовольствием.
It means "Thank you, kindly."
Now you know 3 different ways to say "thank you" in Russian! But how do you respond if someone thanks you?
If someone says "thank you" in Russian, simply say Пожалуйста. It means "you're welcome."
Let's wrap up this lesson by recapping what we've learned. Listen to the expressions and repeat after me.
“Thank you."
