The phrase "thank you" (Shukran lak) is perhaps the most important thing to learn in Arabic or any other language. Showing gratitude for a simple act, like explaining directions, serving food, help with luggage, is among the most valuable means of connecting with others in a foreign culture. If you have the option of learning multiple versions of "thank you", such as a formal means of saying it and a more casual version, learn both and learn what situations to use each version.
