Grazie per tutto. Mi piace molto il corso e sto imparando cose nuove ogni giorno.


A presto

Patricia


PS- Can I say "Grazie mille per tutto" ? Is that correct?

Ciao Florencia,

thanks for your question!


Tutto = everything

Tutti = everyone


"grazie per tutti" is incorrect. You can say:

grazie a nome di tutti / grazie da tutti -> "thank you on everyone's behalf" / "thank you from everyone"

grazie per tutto / grazie di tutto -> Thanks for everything


I hope this helps!

Ciao!

I just wanted to know if "grazie di tutto" works the same as "grazie per tutti" or if the last one is wrong.

Hi Liliana,

you're right, it expresses excitement. You can say "grazie, volentieri" to accept something you've been offered. It can be something like a cup of tea, but also an invitation. For example: "Vuoi venire con noi al cinema?" (Would you like to come to the cinema with us?) "Grazie, volentieri" (Gladly, thank you).


It is a neutral expression, meaning that you can use it both in formal and informal situations.


Thanks for your comment!

Hi,

I am curious as to when you would use "grazie, volentieri"? Is it formal or informal? Does it express being excited?
