Manner Monday: Thank you

As seen on:

Thank you.
Learn to say ‘Thank you’ in a new language to someone you interact with this week.

While working on Cruise Ships, I have to admit that I was not completely fluent in any language other than ‘Oklahoman’. But I did make it a point to learn a few key phrases, such as ‘Thank you’ in many other languages. Trust me, it goes a long way if you make the effort.
Here are a few:

  • Tusen Takk: Norwegian
  • Spasiba: Russian
  • Mauliate: Philippino
  • Sagol: Turkish/Cyprus
  • Grazzi: Maltese
  • Dank schön: German
  • Merci beaucoup: French
  • Cheers: England
  • No Problem: Jamaican… ok, so it’s really ‘Thank you’… but it seems as though in Jamaica, ‘No Problem’ is what you hear most 🙂

Have fun…and remember, trying is half the battle!

Do you have a ‘manner’ you would like to see covered on Manner Monday?  Feel free to send me your thoughts.  And, of course, please share ‘Manner Monday’ with your friends and colleagues.

‘Thank you’!
