    Default Re: expressions or idioms

    1) Thatís very kind of you.
    2) Thanks alot.
    3) How thoughtful
    4) Do you mind if...
    5) Thanks so much.

    1) "Thank you. That was very nice."
    2) "Thank you" but could also be used ironically.
    3) "How nice/kind" (I think "That was very thoughtful of you" is "Fue muy considerado por tu parte")
    4) I don't know how else to explain this one, but "Do you mind if I smoke?" is "ŅTe importa si fumo?"
    5) "Thank you very much"

    I hope I could help you a little
