What other word (easier one) can I use rather than "appreciate" in the phrase "I appreciate your help." ?

By easier I mean for someone who doesn't speak well english.

    Appreciate is probably one of the most common words in English. What's wrong with the normal Thank you for your help?

You can generally use the word value in the same way as appreciate. For example,

I value your help
I value your advice
I value your contribution

The main difference is that value is more objective, whereas appreciate is more personal. According to this NGRAM, up until 1900, value was more widely used than appreciate.
