I am quite curious if it's quite logical and reasonable to say 'thank you in advance'. I know it's quite common, but I've never used it. Would a native say so? I would also like a few comments (of yours) on this.

Thank you.

Warm regards

Hi Prajwal
I would just stick to using Thank You. Thank You in advance sounds ... different ...
Thanks for your reply, KRK. I suppose you haven't used it too.

Students: We have free audio pronunciation exercises.

It's OK in casual English. But it assumes that the other person will do what is asked, so only use it if you are sure about this.

I would avoid it in business English.

Thank you very much, Clive.

Warm regards
I guess we can use it here (englishforums.com) as it's for knowledge purposes and not for any business opportunities.
Teachers: We supply a list of EFL job vacancies

No problem! Emotion: smile

It's definitely better than saying nothing at all(some people forget say 'thank you')

Yup! Emotion: smile

Yes, I'm constantly amazed at how some people here never say 'please' or 'thank you'.

I'm starting to wonder if politeness is just not a feature of some cultures at all.
