ACCEPTING AND REFUSING USING THANKS October 24, 2019 Gonzalo Re E-LESSONS, For Lawyers, For translators No Comments 0 Likes 24/10/19 ACCEPTING AND REFUSING USING THANKS We often use Thank you / Thanks like Yes, please, to accept offers. Would you like some candy bars? Thank you. How many? To make it clear that one wishes to refuse something, it is normal to say No, thank you / No, thanks. If you just say thanks, the other person will interpret you’re accepting. Another piece of cake? No, thanks. I’ve eaten too much already. Note that Yes, thanks is not used to accept offers, but to confirm that things are all right. Do you have enough potatoes? Yes, thanks. Everything is delicious.
