Lesson Transcript

Hi, everybody! I’m Jaehwi from KoreanClass101.com.
Do you know how to say “thank you” in Korean? In this lesson, you'll learn three different ways to say "thank you" and how to respond.
Let’s start with the easiest one.
감사합니다
[slowly] 감사합니다
It means “thank you.”
If you want to be more formal, you can use this phrase.
대단히 감사합니다.
[slowly] 대단히 감사합니다.
It means “thank you very much.”
When you want to say that you deeply appreciate someone or something, make sure to bow a bit or smile. That's the best way to demonstrate the highest level of gratitude.
To sound like a pro, you can add the reason why you're thankful. For example, 와 주셔서 대단히 감사합니다.
“Thank you very much for coming.”
What about between friends? Here's the way to say it.
고마워.
[slowly] 고마워.
It means “thanks.”
Now you know 3 different ways to say "thank you" in Korean! But how do you respond if someone thanks you?
If someone thanks you in Korean, simply say 아니에요. It means "not at all."
Let's wrap up this lesson by recapping what we've learned. Listen to the expression and repeat after me.
“Thank you.”
감사합니다
*beep
감사합니다
The formal way to say “thank you very much.”
대단히 감사합니다.
*beep
대단히 감사합니다.
The casual way to say “Thanks.”
고마워.
*beep
고마워.
And to respond, just say:
아니에요.
*beep
아니에요.
Well done! [pause]
Don't be surprised if an older person uses informal language toward you, even if you don't know each other. Age plays a big role in Korea, so sometimes older people will use the informal "thank you" to show their appreciation.
You just learned three different ways to say “thank you” and how to respond in Korean.
And, if you really want to become fluent and speak Korean from the very first lesson, go to KoreanClass101.com.
I’ll see you next time. 안녕히 계세요.

Hello Jaehwi,


Could you please give the romanization of this phrase?


와 주셔서 대단히 감사합니다


Also, it'd be so lovely if you could break down this 와 주셔서, how does it derive from the dictionary verb for "come"?


Thank you, 대단히 감사합니다!

Hi Camilla!


Thank you for your comment.

Your name in Hangul would be 카밀리아(ka-mil-li-ah).

Feel free to ask if you have other query. Thanks!
