    Hello, could anyone tell me what does the expression "far too kind" mean? For example: you're far too kind. I didn't find it on the dictionary.

    Thanks!

    Se dice "you're far too kind" para agradecer a alguien que ha ayudado mas que es necesario; alguien que ha hecho mucho para ayudar.

    - although... it's a bit exaggerated and may be meant ironically.

    En este caso, "far" sirve para enfatizar "too". Por lo que sé, "way" también se puede usar de esta manera: "way too much".

    Saludos.

    Mi diccionario dice:

    (AUST., G.B., S. AF., U.S., BRM.) far too kind 1. Es usted demasiado amable. 2. Es usted demasiado bondadoso.

    Estoy de acuerdo con Chaucer
    es la mejor traduccion para esta frase.

    Take care

    Hello,

    Far too kind = too kind

    It just places more emphasis on the fact that the kindness is excessive. The word "far" is actually not required here.

    Tatz.
