  • Takashi says:

    If it’s not too difficult, I’d recommend to always say “arigatoo gozaimas(u)” with “gozaimas(u)”. It is rude when you only say “arigatoo” to those who you don’t know very well. Actually people in Japan are used to hearing “arigatoo” from non-native speakers, so they don’t get angry even if an obvious non-native speaker says it without gozaimas(u), but among native speakers it’s clearly rude.
