    Default thankful or grateful

    hello,
    I would like to ask if there is any difference between the two adjectives and if in business correspondence we should use rather ferateful instead of thankful.
    I would also like to ask about the ver to arrive, the rules says we arrive in town, city or country and arrive at if it is a building. Is it possible to say "arrive in the hospital" and if yes, why so,
    thank you very much,
    L.Petrikova

    Default Re: thankful or grateful

    In a letter, i would say that I would be grateful if...
    I'd use 'thankful' to describe someone who expressed their gratitude, and not to describe my own.
    I'd say I arrived at hospital.
