Hi Craig, Hi Reza:
I've been listening to your podcast many months ago (for many months) while I'm doing my house-work, at the gym, in the garden.....
It's a wonderful way to improve English and I hope you'll reach at least one thousand episodes and I could stand listening to.
I'd like, if you don't mind, to hear about how to use "thank" in English, the noun and the verb because It's a bit confuse (confusing) to me.
Thanks for your time and go on!

to thank (verb) - agradecer a alguien por algo (thank you for the coffee)
To say thank you to someone - thank you for listening to this podcast and writing a review on iTunes!
thanks - gracias (informal) cheers! (UK)
to give thanks for something - We give thanks for the love of our family. - Damos gracias por el amor de nuestra familia.
Thanksgiving - Día de Acción de Gracias

Ironic use: Who do we have to thank for this mess? - ¿A quién debemos dar las gracias por este desastre? / Thanks a lot!

Thank you so much. (Many thanks) - muchísimas gracias
thank you very much (many thanks) - muchas gracias
Thank you for all your help. - Le agradezco toda su ayuda.
I can't thank you enough. I can never thank you enough. A big/huge thank you!
Do British people say thank you more than the Spanish?
