Thank You – A Chinese Children’s Song

There is no better time than NOW to feel thankful. It is great that each year at around Thanksgiving, children and adults are doing thankful activities. However, further than being reminded to show our gratitude once a year, we should practice and teach our children to be thankful all the time.

WHY IS BEING THANKFUL IMPORTANT

Research shows that a sense of gratitude can benefit children and adults in various ways: it makes us happier and less stressed in general. It makes us feel satisfied with what we have and less envious about other people. It also helps children to step in someone else’s shoes and recognize the moments when somebody else did something nice although he or she did not need to. This awareness of kindness creates a sense of belonging.

HOW TO SAY “THANK YOU” IN CHINESE

A good way to show appreciation is to say “thank you” when others do nice things to us. It is quite important for kids to learn to express “thank you” even to small actions such as being passed a pencil. “谢谢” is “Thanks” in Chinese. In addition to “谢谢”, there are some other expressions such as:

  • 谢谢你 Thank you
  • 谢谢您 Thank you (This is used when addressing to older people or in formal situations to show respect.)
  • 谢谢大家 Thank you all (This is used when addressing to a group of audience.)
  • 感谢 Thank you (More formal than 谢谢)
