***** NOT A TEACHER *****
1. Here in the States, "Your English is quite good" means something like "very good."
2. But in England, according to some Brits who post here, it means something like "It is good, but ...."
3. This morning at another grammar helpline, two Brits told me this:
a. Your English is QUITE good. = less than enthusiastic about the quality of your English.
b. Your English is quite GOOD. = a little more enthusiastic about the quality of your English.
4. Maybe we non-Brits should avoid using "quite" when we are speaking with Brits.
5. Let's see what the Brits advise us to do.
HAVE A NICE DAY!
