"You are welcome" is a great common courtesy word to learn in any language. It encourages listening to the the person you are talking to. Once you recognize someone express gratitude, for instance a restauranteur will thank you for visiting, you can reply with you are welcome. Whether you are in Italy and can reply prego, prego, or Korea where you might say cheonmaneyo, engaging in a little dialogue in a foreign language is such a rewarding experience. Did that help? You're welcome!
