Lesson Transcript

Assalam u Alaikum mera naam Afrah hai. Hi everybody! My name is Afrah. Welcome to UrduPod101.com’s “3 minat mein Urdu”. The fastest, easiest, and most fun way to learn Urdu.
In the last lesson, you learned how to introduce yourself in Urdu. In this lesson, you’re going to learn how to use good manners when you thank people.
Kyaa aap taiyaar hain? Are you ready? To chaliye shuru karen. So let’s begin!
Saying Thank you in Urdu is very easy! It’s just one word:
Shukriya
[slowly] Shukriya
Shukriya means “thank you”.
You can emphasize Shukriya by adding bahut, which means “very much”.
So it becomes “bahut Shukriya.”
[slowly] bahut Shukriya.
So now you’ve learned how to say ‘Thank you’ in Urdu. But how will you reply if someone else says ‘Thank you’ to you?
In Urdu “you’re welcome” is sometimes expressed as Apka khair maqdam hai.
(slow) Apka khair maqdam hai.
Apka khair maqdam hai.
You can also respond to someone who has thanked you by using another expression.
This is koii baat nahii, which literally means "It's nothing."
(slow)koii baat nahii
koii baat nahii
So when someone says Shukriya to you, you can simply reply with:
koii baat nahii or Apka khair maqdam hai.
Now it’s time for Afrah’s Advice
Pakistanis do not always use the expressions for “Thank you” and "You're welcome" in everyday situations; it is a concept literally translated from
English. Native speakers often show politeness simply by using polite pronouns and verb forms while speaking.
Do you know what Subah Bakhair means? In our next lesson you’ll learn this and other greetings in Urdu!
Phir milenge! See you then!
