So, this package came the other day.
00:03
I wasn't expecting this yet.
00:05
I'm not sure if you know what this is.
00:06
Should I open it now?
00:08
Or should I open it at the end of the video?
00:11
Maybe I'll open it now.
00:12
Yeah, the other day, my phone,
00:14
all of a sudden I got a message,
00:15
and it said your package has arrived.
00:17
And I was a little bit shocked.
00:18
So let's open this up, see what it is.
00:21
I think some of you already know,
00:22
if you looked at the thumbnail.
00:25
Inside, we have a letter.
00:27
I'm not gonna read the whole letter,
00:29
but it basically says,
00:30
if you took one step for each subscriber you have,
00:33
do you know how far that would get you?
00:35
For starters,
00:36
of over 13 times around the perimeter of Beijing,
00:39
or 14 times around Paris, or 15 times around New York.
00:43
That's because you now have over 1 million subscribers.
00:45
So again, I'm not gonna read the whole thing,
00:47
but I thought that was a really cool first paragraph.
00:50
This is, of course, a gold play button.
00:54
Let me get this out of the box.
00:56
It's much bigger than the silver one.
00:59
It's much heavier as well.
01:01
So let me just let you have a little bit of a look here.
01:05
Take the plastic off the bottom, and hold this up.
01:09
Maybe you can see yourself in the reflection.
01:12
I'm just joking about that,
01:13
but I'm just very, very excited to get this.
01:16
I'm very, very happy, and I'm very, very thankful.
01:19
I'm thankful, not because I feel like I've worked hard,
01:23
and I deserve this.
01:25
I'm thankful because all of you
01:27
clicked the subscribe button.
01:29
There's kind of this funny balance, right?
01:31
Like I can make really good stuff, and put it on YouTube.
01:34
But if people don't click subscribe,
01:36
you don't end up getting
01:37
a really, really cool plaque like this.
01:40
So this is for me, but it's a also for all of you.
01:43
In my mind and in my heart,
01:45
I do wanna say thank you for clicking that subscribe button
01:48
at some point in your life.
01:50
And so let's shift gears a little bit here.
01:53
Let's do a little lesson about how to say thanks in English.
01:56
I did this way back when I got my silver play button.
01:59
This is kind of the same lesson,
02:00
but stick around if you wanna learn,
02:02
or review how to say thanks in English.
02:04
The first way we say thanks
02:05
is just the traditional thank you.
02:08
Maybe you go somewhere,
02:10
and someone throws a party for you, and it's your birthday.
02:13
You go to a relative's house, and you have a birthday party.
02:16
And at the end, you say to your sister, or mom, or brother,
02:19
whoever organized the party, you say thank you.
02:22
The formal, traditional, normal, easy way to say thank you.
02:26
But we also have like an informal way to say thank you.
02:29
And that's just saying thanks.
02:31
So imagine you want to go on a trip,
02:33
and you don't like driving,
02:34
and you're going on the trip with a friend,
02:36
and your friend says I'll drive.
02:38
You could respond with the quick informal way
02:40
of saying thank you, and just say thanks, that's great,
02:43
because I don't like driving.
02:45
We also have ways to kind of be quite formal,
02:49
or to emphasize how much we are thankful.
02:53
You might use the phrase thanks a lot.
02:55
Let's think about maybe you're moving,
02:58
and a friend helps you move.
02:59
So you're moving from one apartment to another,
03:01
or one house to another,
03:03
and a friend helps you all day.
03:04
At the end of the day, you would probably say thanks a lot.
03:08
So it's more than just a thank you.
03:10
It's more than just saying thanks.
03:12
You're emphasizing that you're really,
03:14
really, really thankful, so thanks a lot.
03:16
You might even say this at the end.
03:18
You might say I owe you one.
03:19
When you say thanks a lot, I owe you one,
03:22
it means someone has done something for you,
03:24
and you are so thankful,
03:26
you feel like you need to repay them someday.
03:28
So you say, I owe you one.
03:29
And then of course, if you really want to emphasize it,
03:32
you can say thank you so much,
03:34
or thank you very much.
03:36
This is what I would say to you.
03:38
Thank you so much.
03:39
You even kind of change how you say it.
03:42
You don't say that phrase quickly.
03:43
You don't say thank you so much.
03:45
You say thank you so much.
03:47
I would emphasize the word so,
03:49
so thank you so much for clicking that subscribe button.
03:53
That's just awesome of you.
03:54
And another phrase, just one last one.
03:57
Sometimes we'll say something like,
03:58
I can't thank you enough.
04:01
So when I do a video like this, when I thank you,
04:03
and when I'm happy about getting an award,
04:06
often, people want to voice their appreciation of me.
04:10
There's a couple ways that you can do this.
04:12
You could say congratulations,
04:14
because I got an award,
04:15
and maybe you're proud of me, or you're happy for me.
04:18
So you might say congratulations, Bob.
04:21
You might say something like,
04:22
way to go, or awesome job, or nice work.
04:26
All of those things would be ways to kind of praise me.
04:29
This seems kind of weird right now.
04:30
I'm teaching you how to give me praise,
04:33
or how to give me compliments.
04:35
But anyways, there's no requirement
04:39
that you give me a compliment, or praise me.
04:41
But anyways, that would be another way to do it.
04:43
You could say I'm so happy for you.
04:46
Often, when people achieve something in life,
04:48
people will say, oh, that's great.
04:50
Congratulations, way to go, I'm so happy for you.
04:54
And then lastly, you might say,
04:56
that's awesome, or that's amazing.
04:57
Those are two very informal quick phrases we use
05:00
when someone does something,
05:02
and we just want to tell them
05:03
we think they did a great job.
05:04
We would say that's amazing Bob, or that's awesome, Bob.
05:09
Again, I'm laughing,
05:10
because I'm teaching you how to leave comments
05:14
that will make me feel better about myself.
05:16
That was not the point of this video.
05:18
The point of this video to go all the way back
05:20
to the beginning is to simply, once again, say thank you.
05:23
Thank you so much for clicking that subscribe button.
05:26
Let's have a look at this one more time.
05:28
I will hang this somewhere where you can see it.
05:32
Maybe I'll put it beside the silver one.
05:34
I just never thought this would ever happen.
05:37
I'm actually still in shock.
05:39
When the plaque came in the mail,
05:41
when the delivery truck came, I mean,
05:43
I still can hardly believe it.
05:46
It's easy to imagine a stadium full of 60 or 70,000 people,
05:50
but it's hard to imagine 1 million people
05:53
all click that little red button.
05:54
So anyways, I'll just end by saying thanks.
05:57
Thanks a lot.
05:58
And I'm happy to do this,
06:00
and I will keep making English lessons for all of you, bye.
06:03
