Thank You Notes (Real Life)
In the US, many people write thank you notes when they receive a gift. It is considered the minimum courtesy toward the gift-giver to acknowledge the thoughtfulness and usefulness of the gift.However, many Americans never write thank you notes, the younger generations especially. It seems that we may be losing this custom.If you are in the States and someone gives you a gift to honor your arrival, your birthday, a holiday or any other occasion, it is best to write them a card thanking them for the gift. It is also nice to thank people who let you stay in their home or cook a meal for you.A thank you note can be very brief. Here is an example:Dear Mrs. Robinson,Thank you so much for the bracelet you gave me for my birthday. It will always remind me of you and of my visit to your city. I appreciate your thinking of me.Warm regards,KayaAfter you write it, make sure you have the correct address, put a stamp on it and drop it in the mail.Listen to Amanda and Kevin talk about thank you notes. -- View this and other great English lessons at www.englishbaby.com
