    Do they mean the same?

    Dear teachers,*

    Thank you for the hand.
    Thank you for your help.
    Do they mean the same or at least similar?


    Thank you.

    I would say "Thank you for giving me a hand." That would mean the same thing as:
    " Thank you for your help."

    Yes!, it is almost similar.



    Thank you.

    Thank you, tigerpaws.
    The example expression you've given me does sound better.
    But one more question: "Thank you for the hand." , is this also acceptable and grammatically correct?

    Sorry to take up more of your time.

    I have never heard it said this way in the US.
