Ianさん & Melissaさん


Thank you so much for your question!

Melissaさん, your understanding is right 👍

Though, let me explain the difference with my examples.

I asked you to lend me your pen and you passed it over to me, then I say ありがとうございます. After I finished using your pen and returned it to you, I say ありがとうございました (in past) because I finished the action. Hope this example will help you understand the difference 😉

As Ian asked a few days ago, could you please explain the difference between ありがとうございます and ありがとうございました ? (Here are two specific examples: I used ありがとうございました when I was returning/exchanging clothing to a store and the clerk was helping me for a long time with the return/exchange process. Otherwise, if it's something like asking "Where is this CD?" I use ありがとうございます. That's the way someone explained it to me before, that you can use gozaimashita for past things or things that took a long time. I don't know if that's correct! Is there a specific lesson number that addresses this? If in doubt, should we just use ありがとうございます ??) Thanks in advance!

Hi Kevin Lau,


Thank you for your comment. Yes, we use "sumimasen" when we show our gratitude, too.

That's usually when you feel "sorry" or "bad," too. You are grateful that someone does something for you, but at the same time, you also feel bad making him/her do something for you. It's like "sorry, but thank you," 😄

Please let us know if you have any questions!


Best regards,

Izumi

The only phrases I know are ありかとうand どうもありかとう and that's from mango languages!! All the other ones I don't know. But I think my favorite is prob あなたは最高の先生です! and あなたのおかげで、たくさんのことを学びました。ik I haven't been watching all the vids and everything but I have downloaded several of the print outs and I already printed some out. I've been learning a bit and I'm so glad the JapanesePod101 exists and I love that it has an ACTUAL Japanese teacher.
