    You're welcome

    Hi,
    How can I answer this compliment:
    "What a nice house you have!"
    I'm thinking of two possibilities:
    1. Thank you
    2. You're welcome
    Which is correct?
    Thanks.

    Thank you, susiedqq.
    When someone says "Thank you", I answer "You're welcome".
    Is it unchangeable?
    Thanks.

    Re: You're welcome

    (I am not a teacher) Generally in English we would only say "you're welcome" in response to someone thanking us.

    In response to the compliment, you could also say:

    -That's very kind of you to say.
    -You're most generous.
    -I'm glad you like it!
