I was actually wondering about thanks very much which I have sầu often heard from British people. Many thanks looks far more grammatically correct than thanks very much because much does not go with countable nouns. –user32480 Jan 11 "13 at 3:39

"Thank you all" is correct because the "I" is implied. The verb "khổng lồ thank" is correctly conjugated as "thank" for the subject "I." Correct as is!

The word "you", in hocbong2016.net, can be singular or plural. This is different than in some other languages such as French where there is a distinction between "tu" & "vous" that can either be the formality of the situation or if the addressed are plural or singular.
