“Thank you.” This short but important English phrase acknowledges kind words or actions. But sometimes, those two words are not enough. When it comes to thanking people, you can be creative!
To thank someone, send a letter. Letter-writing is fast becoming a lost art form. When you put pen to paper, people will be happy you took time to write. Don’t worry about the letter’s length. Long or short, just express how thankful you are.
put pen to paper：開始動筆、開始寫、下筆寫
Take your gratitude one step further and make a YouTube video. A visual thank you can be fun. Film yourself opening a friend’s gift. Perform a drama or song to show your gratitude to people who have helped you.
You can also put together a simple gift bag. Little gifts show people you think they’re important. They can also really make someone happy!
Do something special. To say thank you, take them to dinner or cook for them. Buy them the book they’ve been wanting. Any of these actions lets them know how much you appreciate them!
