Are there more phrases in Spanish for “thank you very much”?

Yes, in fact, let me teach you three formulas to be grateful in Spanish.

  1. Doy gracias por + cosa o acción que se agradece
  2. Agradezco + cosa o acción que se agradece
  3. Estoy agradecida/o por + cosa o acción que se agradece

Doy gracias por

Dar las gracias por algo is to “give thanks” for something. See an example:

  • Doy gracias por la familia que me ha tocado y por los amigos que me dio la vida. A mis padres, por educarme y criarme con amor. A mis hermanas, por ser como son. A mis cuñados, por quererme como a una hermana. A mi pareja, por su amor incondicional. A mis primos, por alegrarme la infancia. A mis amigos, por bancarme en las buenas y las malas.

Agradezco

Agradecer is the verb for “to say thanks” in Spanish. See an example:

  • Agradezco tener buena salud, ser libre, vivir en democracia, poder dormir en una cama calentita, tener pan en la mesa, tener educación y poder disfrutar de la playa y otros placeres.

Estoy agradecida/o

Estar agradecido or agradecida is how we say we are grateful in Spanish. See an example:

  • Estoy extremadamente agradecida por todo lo que gané con mi trabajo: experiencia, confianza en mí misma, crecimiento, aprecio, reconocimiento, colegas y amigos nuevos.
