Hi everybody …This is Mr. Adioke in Bogor. How are you today ? Are you oke? I hope So…are you happy ? I hope so. We will look at two action which many of us do although maybe not as often as we should. Today we will talk about saying Please and Thank you.
We always say “please” when we ask for something. Please can I watch some TV ? May I please leave the room ? Could I please have some ice cream?
Would you like some ice cream ? Oh yes please
do you want something to eat ? Yes i would please.
Can I offer to you a cup of tea? Oh please that would be great.
The word please can be use to show satisfaction and pleasure :
I pleased with my new house. This job pleased me, I am very please to meet you.
From those few example you can see that please and pleasure are closely related in origin but are sometimes used in completely different ways. If something make you pleased you can say that you feel uplifted, perked, chuffed, gladdened, overjoyed, over the moon.
Saying Thank You
The action of saying thank you is seen the most polite of showing how great full you are for receiving something or as a way of acknowledging an act of kindness. We say thank you to show our appreciation, by saying thank you show your gratitude, you express your appreciation, you return the generosity, verbally, you offer sincerest thanks : you are grateful.
There are many ways to say thank you :
