    Default difference between qualification and quality

    Hello everyone, when I use a bilingual dictionary they almost have the same meaning, but I was wondering and then looked up them in a monolingual dictionary, and I am little bit confused now.
    Can you please explain me the main difference that I have to know.

    It is possible that the words for "qualification" and "quality" are the same in your language but the two words have different meanings in English.

    Which dictionaries did you use and what were the definitions you found?
    Remember - correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing make posts much easier to read.

    Well I used the thefreedictionary.com last.
    The thing is, if I am intelligent then is that "intelligent" being my "quality"? On the other hand, I am intelligent again and they are looking for somebody for the job.Do they looking for a "qualification" ?
    Actually, the main problem is I don't know how to use them in a sentence.

    Being intelligent isn't a "qualification". Generally, if they ask for qualifications they are looking for exams you have passed, whether they are academic or vocational.
