  • "Cheers, mate"

  • A common way of saying thank you in british english is "cheers, mate."

  • Many people know that 'cheers' can be used to express good luck before a drink,

  • But cheers is also a common way of saying 'thanks' in an informal and friendly way!

  • For example, "cheers for sending over the email. It was really useful."

  • "Cheers for lending to me that money. You're a lifesaver!"

  • Or you can just say, "cheers!"

  • 'Mate' is a common way of saying 'friend'.

  • We use 'mate' with our good friends.

  • For example, "hello, mate. Long time no see!"

  • "Hiya, mate! How are you?"

  • But we can also use it with strangers whose names we do not know!

  • For example, "excuse me, mate. Do you know where the station is?"

  • Or a simple, "thanks, mate."

  • While mate is more commonly used to refer to men, it can be used with any gender.

  • So, "cheers, mate" means "thanks, friend".

  • When was the last time you thanked a friend?
