Ça semble correct...12 You say `You're welcome' to someone who has thanked you for something in order to acknowledge their thanks in a polite way.
`Thank you for the information.'*`You're welcome.'

That's probably correct. I remember when I first learned this response "You're welcome!", our teacher took pain to remind us not to put a "d" after "welcome".Gil said:Je crois que la confusion vient du fait que l'anglicisme "Bienvenue" est encore trop souvent utilisé au Canada pour dire «Je vous en prie, il n'y a pas de quoi, de rien»
Bienvenue est incorrect dans ce contexte, mais "You're welcome"est correct.
I take it you mean in the English-speaking countries?Jean-Michel Carrère said:Someone in France told me it wasn't very polite to reply "You are welcome" after someone has said "Thank you" to you.
Can you confirm or invalidate this opinion ?
It's not wrong, but I think it sounds a little bit excessive. Usually thank you is the last thing said, in that case.I would like to now if it is right when you had wished somebody happy birthday and then he says ''Thank you'' and you answer with '' You are welcome '' . ))
