"It's nothing" is also correct here

Sort of like Spanish's "de nada."

Not only correct, it's the literal translation.

From all the other languages, there is a fast recording and then a slow recording. Why does Vietnamese not feature this person speaking slower"

Possibly because slowing it down may change the tone?

@Davidegon I don't know, but she has a point indeed. I don't know anything about southern varities. But for example in northern/hanoi, the stressed "hỏi" goes down, then up. In fast speech, it doesn't have the same shape, it might just go down. I think the natives recognizes the tone by other factors and just the pitch

"You're welcome" as the response when someone says "thank you" as opposed to actually telling someone they are welcome somewhere.

"Oh, it was nothing" is also a normal way too respond to being thanked in English, so it makes sense here too.

The same as "de rien" (though "Pas de quoi" seems a closer translation") in French, "di niente" in Italian, "Dafür nicht" in German and "не за что" in Russian.

In Spanish is closer to «no hay de qué»

Why is it "You are welcome" and not just "welcome"

"You are welcome" should be accepted without the exclamation mark
