The phrase "Fine, thank you" (Genki Desu.) is for when you have a decision to make (is this color ok?) or when asked if everything is acceptable (how is your meal?). It is common courtesy to acknowledge the question, and show gratitude for being asked. Showing gratitude for a simple act, like explaining directions, serving food, help with luggage, assistance with shopping, is among the most valuable means of connecting with others in a foreign culture. If you can learn multiple versions of "thank you", such as a formal means and a more casual version, learn both and when to use each version.
