Q: a polite expression
と a graceful expression はどう違いますか?
A: The phrase 'Please excuse me,' is a polite expression.

To be 'polite' is to be courteous. You would want your children to be polite when they speak to their elders, or when they are in school.

The way a ballerina dances is graceful.

You could say, "She spoke with a graceful expression on her face," but that would be a little clunky. It would be better to say, "She spoke gracefully."

You probably wouldn't describe an expression as graceful. Actions are only graceful in the way they are performed.

Expressions technically could be graceful... but at that point, you'd be talking about the act of expressing. Not what they say, but how they say it.

In summary: You speak politely. You act gracefully.

Q: 여러가지 일을 한꺼번에 하지말고 하나 씩 해.

(I know the expression one at a time, but what 's opposite? は 英語 (アメリカ) で何と言いますか?
A: "Don't do everything all at once" is a common way to express the opposite of "one at a time"
Q: What is a common expression American people frequently use in order to show gratitude to others except for "thank you"? は 英語 (アメリカ) で何と言いますか?
A: "I really appreciate your detailed answer" ("detailed" is an adjective that refers to the noun "answer"; "in details" usually refers to a verb: "I explained the situation in details" = I explained every detail/part of the situation).

In my mind there is little to no difference between "I really appreciate it"' and "I really appreciate that".
If you use a passive ("It's really appreciated") then you're putting more focus on the thing that is being appreciated, and not on the fact that you are grateful ("I really appreciate it"). So in a more formal environment you may hear "It's really/highly appreciated". For example, if you are writing a formal e-mail you can say "Your kind assistance on the matter is highly appreciated", so that you don't emphasize that YOU are grateful, but that the assistance is important and will be appreciated.

So I would use the second and third one with friends*/less formal situations, and the first: in more formal ones.

*Be careful not to overuse "I really appreciate it/that" when talking with (close) friends, because it expresses more gratitude than just "thank you", and may sound odd. If you dropped your eraser (which is something trivial and small) and your friend picked it up for you it may be better just to say "Thanks/Thank you" instead of "I really appreciate that". If you asked your friend to help you with your math homework, then it's fine to say it because helping you with that is not a small thing.

As you get more exposure to English, you will pick these things up, don't worry. :)

Q: when is the expression of ought to used? は 英語 (アメリカ) で何と言いますか?
A: I don't want to do my homework, but I ought to if I want to get a good grade.

Most people say 'should have' instead, but ought is more like, you should do it because it is your duty or responsibility. A lot of people still use the word.
Q: would there be other expressions of "burst out laughter" は 英語 (アメリカ) で何と言いますか?
