Note that

1: When I say the “male” version or “female” version I am NOT referring to the speaker, but rather to the recipient. So whether you are a man or a woman, it doesn’t matter when you are the one saying “thank you” in Hebrew. What matters is who you are talking to.
2: The difference between the male and female versions is the last vowel. You will learn more about that if you either enroll in my free conversational Hebrew course or follow the website for future Hebrew grammatical notes.
3: You should feel free to say “todah rabah” without “lech” or “lecha”.
