Is there a special way to say thank you where you are from?
My Northwest daughter is getting used to "Thanks, y’all," coming from the locals in her new home state of Mississippi.
We are feeling a lot of gratitude around here at the library, with the resounding support of this wonderful county at the polls this week.
Thank you (English), Gracias (Spanish), Merci (French), Grazie (Italian), (Domo) Arigato (Japanese), Do jeh (Cantonese), Xie xie (Mandarin), Danke sehr (German), Spasiba (Russian), Gamsahabnida (Korean), Takk (Icelandic), Mahalo (Hawaiian, Toda (Hebrew), Efharisto (Greek), Hvala (Bosnian, Croatian and Serbian), Dhanyawaad (Hindi)…and that’s just a small expression of our gratitude.
Enjoy traveling or arm-chair-traveling? Like to learn or dabble in different languages? Don’t miss the chance to use Mango Language learning with your library card – an excellent app for your phone, tablet and the desktop version is great, too. Mango teaches you grammar without you realizing it. Visual people love it. Grab your library card and go to www.krl.org. Select Mango in our Research Databases collection (on the black menu bar under "Language Learning").
And thank you! You are as special as it gets!
