Difference between " thank " and " thanks "
Hello please i want to know the difference between " thank " and " thanks "
I remark thank sometime when i put " s " my answer was wrong and sometime no.
I wanna know what is the real difference and i what situation did we use one or other notation.
Hello, but i don't really understand what you mean by " formal " and " casual ". Can you be more explicit please ?
is your response mean that we have to use " thank you " when we are for exemple in front of a great personality ( like President, minister , a director .. ) and " thanks " can be use when we are for exemple with friend or in familly ?
Generally, if someone passes you the salt, or moves out of your way, or does a small gest for you, you would say "Thanks!". However, I feel "Thank you" has more meaning and I would say that to someone if they bought me a big gift, or did a lot to help me, or defended me. It feels more sincere.
Of course, if you met a powerful person, like the Queen or maybe your boss's boss, you would probably want to say "thank you" even for small things.
But it doesn't matter very much.
