  • How do I say, "Thanks for your help!" in Japanese?

    I mean, I know "otetsudai itadakima____e...," but I'm wondering how many expressions there are for this in Japanese.

    In English, we can say "Thanks for your help," or "I appreciate your help," or "I'd like to extend my thanks," etc.

    What are some useful formal/informal expressions in Japanese?

    手伝ってありがとう!(tetsudatte arigatou) is informal.

      If some one goes out of their way to help you you might say

      わざわざ。。。して頂き、ありがとうございます。

      If a person is just doing their job you can say

      お疲れさまでした。

        I've heard this used at work usually when talking to one of our part-time employees of high-school age... or also to contractors we hire.

        gokurosama (Thanks to a subordinate)

          "Gokuro San/Sama" is more like "Thanks for your time." It's when someone has spent a significant amount of time dealing with you. It's a bit different from a scenario where a person has done SOMETHING for you.

          But good addition to the thread, I must say.

              This is the cool thread.

              手伝ってくれてありがとう

              This works right? I say a lot of "Kurete Arigatou" to the japanese kids who come to converse with us in class.
