A: I have to say that you sing very well.
B: Thanks. Everybody often says that too.

- Did I use the right clause here "Everybody often says that too"?

Thanks a lot!

    - Dear cycloneviv!

    - I don't get it. I think you replied to the wrong post. :) By the way did I use the right phrase here?

    Thanks a lot!

    Ooh, I did too! How did I do that? I'll fix it. :D

    In regard to the question in this thread, I'm afraid that doesn't sound right.

    Here are some options:

    "Everyone says that."
    "Others have said the same thing."
    "People are always telling me that!"

    By the way, I can't think of any way to say this that doesn't sound extremely conceited! Unless you want people to think you're very arrogant about your talents, I'd avoid any comment like this. :)

    Hello Namlan. I see "everybody" as all inclusive and "often" doesn't match "always" in strength. There are lots of possible solutions. One: A lot of people often say that (too). Or: Everybody says that. (less modest)
