This week's theme is simple and always relevant - “Giving Thanks”!

Today's LessonCATEGORY: 間違いやすいボキャブラリー
THANK YOU FOR (the card/coming)


  • We can say “thank you” to someone FOR something - for example, “Thank you for the card” - or FOR DOING something - for example, “Thank you for coming.”

    Be Careful! When saying “thank you” to someone for doing something, we usually do NOT use “your” before the “-ing” form of the verb; for example, we do NOT say, “Thank you for YOUR coming.”
  • 誰かに何かをしてもらってお礼を言うとき、その事(物)に対してお礼を言う言い方(例:Thank you for the card. (カードをありがとう))と、何かしてもらったその行為に対してお礼を言う言い方(例:Thank you for coming. (来てくれてありがとう))の二通りがあります。

    注意:相手の行為にお礼を言う場合、たいてい、動詞の-ing形の前に your は付けません。例えば、Thank you for YOUR coming. ではなく、Thank you for coming. と言います。
