Hi everybody.

As a response to "Thanks", "Thank you", etc., what is the more natural expression used by native speakers?

* You're welcome.
* Don't mention it.
* ?

Any differences between US speakers and UK speakers, for instance? What about uses in Australia, NZ, etc.?

    A lot can depend on region. Here in Australia one often says the following:

    You're welcome.
    Don't mention it.
    No problem.
    No worries (at all).
    That's alright.
    Think nothing of it.

    et cetera. :)

    Ok, I see.

    And does any of them sound more, say, formal?
    I'll try ;).

    A lot can depend on region. Here in Australia one often says the following:

    You're welcome. Pretty neutral - make more formal by adding "you're very/most/quite welcome".
    Don't mention it. Relatively informal.
    No problem. Relatively informal.
    No worries (at all). Informal.
    That's alright. Relatively informal.
    Think nothing of it. Pretty neutral.

    et cetera. :)
