  1. Except “You rock!”, all of them are exactly as in Spanish! “Un millón de gracias”, “Muchísimas gracias”, “Aprecio lo que has hecho por mí” (I hadn’t heard this one, but it exists), “Eres la bomba”, “Muchas gracias”, ·”Estoy en deuda contigo” and “Te debo una”. The last one is my favourite, of course 😀

    Hey, that is cool that they are all the same but one. Amazing how languages are so similar!

  3. Hideki says:

    Mmm… there is a lot of expressions. I can’t learn all of them without living in the US. Is there a expression ‘Thanks a ton’?

  4. Yvonne says:

    Pick one or 2 that you like the most and practice them. Then it won’t be so overwhelming. Yes, we say, Thanks a ton as well. Thanks so much for the ocmment.

  5. Hideki says:

    Thanks for the advice and answer. I pick “Many thanks.” and “I’m in your debt.” I think that the latter fits for Japanese.

    FYI: You know, Japanese “Thank you” says “arigato”. It could be literally translated into English as “That’s hard to be existent.” I think the free translation of “arigato” would be “That’s a rare case.”

    An interest in “You rock!”.
    I suppose “rock” is used as a verb. It means you shake me with the greatness. Right?

    “Thanks a million!”
    If I have a thanks a little, Thanks a hundred! or Thanks a thousand!. Is it funny?

  7. Hideki says:

    Thanks a billion! Regarding to “rock”, I can understand the explanation. That kind of expression is hard to understand for me without explanation.

    Mmm… I thought that “Thanks a thousand! = Thanks a ton!”. Is it right? Anyway, I’ll use more than “million” if I have a thanks a lot 🙂

  8. Tatia_Kova says:

    came to say thank you=))) just used You Rock=))) love it so mush=))) don’t know why=)

  9. Yvonne says:

    I love saying it too! I use it all of the time. It’s so much fun.

  10. Yvonne says:

    I haven’t heard of Thanks a thousand, but I’m sure it can work. 🙂

    I’m glad you understand ‘rock’ now!

  11. Yvonne says:

    Yes, I suppose it can mean that one shakes with greatness. You can also think of it in terms of ‘rock and roll’ or someone being the best or surpreme.

    LOL – Thanks a hundred for showing less thanks. 🙂 That makes me smile!

  12. Yvonne says:

    I always like your insights! so interesting!

  13. Takunori Sanuki says:

    It’s my first time to hear,”You are the bomb!”.Do you use this phrase in business?

  14. Yvonne says:

    A great question! No, don’t use it in business. You can use it with your friends in an informal situation.
