Rejoinders are very popular lately in the world language classrooms, but these words or sentences have been largely used for years in the TESOL and English grammar classes.
According to the Merriam-Webster dictionary, a rejoinder is something spoken, written, or done in return. An answer that implies the satisfying of a question, demand, call, or need.
During this time of the year we like to express gratitude to the world around us, especially to those who are important in every aspect of our lives. The simplest way to express gratitude is by saying “Thank you” or “Gracias” in Spanish.
Let’s take advantage of all this gratitude in the air to help our Spanish class students learn that there are many more ways to express gratitude in Spanish than just “Gracias”. Use them as rejoinders.
I have divided the following ways to say “Gracias” in three categories: formal, informal and religious. In this post I will publish those I recopilated by surveying my friends in my Facebook. Then I will include a couple of websites where you can find more ways to say “Gracias”.
|Muy amable||Mil y mil||Dios lo bendiga|
|Se lo agradezco||Te debo una||Dios te lo pague|
|Quedo en deuda||Muy querido-a||Dios me lo proteja|
|Quedo prendado de Usted||Vacano||Que la virgen lo acompañe|
|Qué lindo-a||Se le tiene en cuenta||Bendiciones|
|Estoy en deuda||Un millón de gracias!||Que la virgen me lo favorezca|
|Qué amable!||Sos lo mejor!|
|Se va a ir al cielo con todo y zapatos!|
