“Merci de” or “merci pour”? Walk, Talk and Learn French Episode 002

Is it merci de … or merci pour…? How do you thank someone for something in French? Join Mark from Coffee Break in this Walk, Talk and Learn French video and learn exactly when to use merci de and when to use merci pour.

This video was based on the phrase Roland Garros vous remercie d’avoir utilisé les transports en commun, meaning “Roland Garros thanks you for using public transport. In the video Mark explains that you can, in fact, use both prepositions de and pour with the word merci, or the verb remercier, but they are used in specific situations. You need to understand what it is you’re thanking someone for in order to know when to use which expression.
