PHRASE OF THE WEEK
No problem.” OR “It’s no problem.

“No problem” is an English phrase which is used to reply to someone else saying “thank you.” It is a way to say that the act that someone is thanking you for did not inconvenience you and you were happy to help/provide something/etc. “No problem” is equivalent to “you are welcome,” but is much more casual and more common. Many English-speakers say “no problem” instead of “you’re welcome,” but the two phrases mean similar things. “You’re welcome” is more common in formal situations, but “no problem” is common in casual situations, such as when someone holds a door open for you or does a little service.

For example:
“Thank you for helping me today!”
“It was no problem!”
OR
“Thanks for the bottle of water!”
“No problem!”
