Language is just a medium of expressing our emotions to the person we want to! Being polite costs nothing but it earns a lot! Saying or expressing our gratitude through the phrase ‘Thank you’ is one of many tools through which we express politeness to the person at hand.

4. Say it in other languages
No no! You don’t have to be a linguistic expert. Just in place of saying, “Thank you,” write or make a video of you telling them to thank you in different languages.
