Learn English – Is “I’m glad it helped” grammatical


Is the phrase "I'm glad it helped" grammatically correct?

And if it is, does it express correctly that I am more than happy that I could help someone?

Best Answer

"I'm glad it helped" is grammatically correct. But it doesn't mean that you're glad you helped, it means you're glad that something helped. It might, from context, be clear that it was something you said, did, or gave them. But "I'm glad it helped" alone doesn't say that.

You can say "I'm glad I helped" or "I'm glad I was able to help" to indicate what you want. But you can't say "I'm glad it helped" unless it's clear what it is you are referring to -- some specific thing that helped.
