thank you

A thank you goes a long way, especially when you are visiting another country. So here's a helpful guide to help you do just that. We don't expect you to be able to learn all of them in 5 minutes, but we think that you could manage to say and spell at least 5 easily (choosing the ones you already know doesn't count!). Let us know if we have got anything wrong and of course if you have any to add to the list...
