Most people know the French say “de rien” for “You’re welcome, but few know we also say “Il n’y a pas de quoi” knowing that when we speak fast, we will completely drop the initial “Il”. In Spanish, it is the word for word translation of what we say in French: “De nada” (“of nothing”).

    Few know that in Spanish we also say, “No hay de que” for “You are welcome.”

      That’s interesting, just like in French, most people don’t know we can also say “Il n’y a pas de quoi”, which is exactly the same as “No hay de que”.
